Each year, the Alaska Advanced Trauma Training Institute features local Alaskan and national experts who share about the latest research and advances in the neurobiology of traumatic stress, trauma-informed systems, and clinical interventions for complex trauma in children and adults. This high quality professional development opportunity exists to expand the knowledge and support the development of trauma-informed care for behavioral health and social service providers across the state of Alaska.
This event is hosted by the Alaska Child Trauma Center at Alaska Behavioral Health with support of the State of Alaska, Division of Behavioral Health. Due to this generous support, registration fees are waived for all participants. There is no virtual attendance option at this time.
