Here's how it works:
Our Justice First Program provides comprehensive professional development for probation, court professionals, law enforcement, secure facility staff, and any other justice professional aiming to enhance their professional skill set. Our program focuses on the impact of trauma on justice-involved youth, strategies to support the mental health and well-being of justice professionals, and pathways to supporting equitable justice systems. Ensuring the most up-to-date training, we anchor our professional development in content developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) such as Think Trauma: A Training for Juvenile Justice Professionals Second Edition.
Think Trauma is comprehensive training examining the impact of psychological trauma on the lives of young people involved in the juvenile justice system. Designed by NCTSN for justice professionals, this training provides tangible skills for supporting adolescents who have been exposed to traumatic life events and comprehensively unpacks strategies for becoming a better-equipped justice professional by understanding the role of community, intergenerational, systemic, and historical forms of trauma in the lives of adolescents and its impact on the wellbeing of justice professionals. The program is delivered on-site and has the option to deliver portions virtually. A train-the-trainer (TOT) option is available to help your agency provide in-house training on an ongoing basis.
