Full course description

The Child Welfare Training Collaborative is a partnership between Georgia State University and the Division of Family and Children Services. We offer training to Division of Family and Children Services staff and their community partners throughout the state of Georgia. These partners include law enforcement, educators/school systems, placement providers, faith community, early care providers, behavioral health, juvenile courts, pediatric health providers, court appointed special advocates, and other community and government organizations.

By providing this online training we are expanding our partnership reach to those who find it difficult to attend training during daytime hours.  It also provides reinforcement for those who have already attended a classroom event. We believe that building your knowledge and awareness of complex trauma, toxic stress, it’s impact on brain development, and building resilience is an important step in changing how we work with children and their families who may be experiencing complex trauma and toxic stress because of abuse or neglect.
