Free 2 1/2-Day Legal Professional Trauma Training

Texas CASA encourages local programs to attend and invite their local partners in child protection to the virtual Legal Professional Trauma Training offered by Texas Lawyers for Children. This free training event is thought provoking, inspiring and a valuable resource for those working in the child protection system.

Designed to support collaborative work and trauma-informed practices, this training is for attorneys, CPS staff, CASA advocates, juvenile probation officers, case managers and other professionals. Cross-system training can be very impactful in building and supporting new approaches toward better outcomes.

You have two opportunities to attend the training. Each session starts on a Wednesday beginning at noon and goes until the following Friday at 4:15 p.m. Registrants are asked to be sure they can attend the first half day, as the information presented is foundational to all the other learning.
