• Training and Organizational Support Action Team

    The Training and Organizational Support Action Team assists with training strategies and vetting training partners as well as creating a pool of volunteer trainers to help us keep training free for agencies and communities without resources. They also provide technical assistance to organizations attempting to move along the continuum from trauma-aware to healing-centered.

    Trauma Aware Training Criteria

    Development of Trauma-Aware Training Criteria for foundational training on Trauma-Awareness, the first level on the healing continuum set forth in the TIPA Plan.


    Trainer Survey Tool

    Through the use of the Trauma-Aware Training Criteria, the team developed a trainer survey tool that allows for the collection of training information. The survey allows community members to select trainings that both meet their needs, and adhere to HEAL PA standards and expectations.


    FREE Trauma Training

    In partnership with Collectively Rooted, HEAL PA developed and released a FREE 6.5 hour trauma training, accessible for all Pennsylvanians. With the support of United Way of Pennsylvania-Resilient PA, the series is housed in a Learning Management System that offers certifications upon completion.
