Event description

Description

The Utah State Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health is pleased to announce that the Utah Trauma Academy will be held October 21 – 25, 2019 at the following location:


Davis Conference Center

1651 North 700 West, Room: Eclipse Expo B

Layton, Utah 84041


The Utah Trauma Academy is based on the Victims Academy developed by the Office of Victims of Crime at the Department of Justice, which is a professional development certificate program. Gabriella Grant, Director for the Center of Excellence for Trauma Informed Care, is the developer and primary trainer for this event.


The theoretical and evidence basis for this initiative is:

- Trauma-informed: Acknowledging the impact of trauma broadly, training all staff on its effects, and focusing program design on the three phases of trauma recovery by Dr. J. Herman.

- Neuro-sequential: Based on the model developed by Dr. B. Perry, the phylogenetic development of the brain, the unique effects on specific parts of the brain and related behavioral and interpersonal issues will be understood and used to develop program design and policies and procedures, including rules.

- Safety-focused: deep organizational commitment to increasing physical and emotional safety, including autonomy of choice, will be the primary intervention, measure of success and modality of engagement.

- Culturally aware: Through empowerment and choice, services will be developed to allow for personal meanings and goals to guide treatment development and success.-

- Peer-based empowerment: Lived experience and consumer voice will be prioritized. Engagement of peers to identify practices that are harmful, counterproductive and costly will be a strong focus.


The Training Agenda is included with the e-mail training announcement.

Cost / Registration

The registration cost for the Utah Trauma Academy is $125.00. Refunds will only be available until October 18, 2019 in the event of an emergency and refunds will not be provided for "no shows" to the Utah Trauma Academy. There are also no scholarships available. The Registration Check-in at the Davis Conference Center will be held from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. October 21st – 25th.

Please do not have someone register on your behalf (like an Office Manager) for the Utah Trauma Academy, which results in the Office Manager being registered rather than you. This creates a problem with the registration check-in and providing the CEU Certificate and Utah Trauma Academy Diploma to the right person.

After you register, please complete the Utah Trauma Academy Acceptance Agreement below:
