The Certificate in Trauma-Informed Programs and Practices for Schools (TIPPS) is designed for K-12 school professionals seeking to expand their knowledge and skills in implementing trauma-informed programs and practices in their schools. TIPPS is an adaptable, evidence-based framework for school improvement structured around 10 core pillars. After completing this online training, participants will have a better understanding of trauma and its effects and how they can contribute to creating safe, nurturing, and inclusive trauma-informed learning environments.
This certificate program is a self-directed online learning experience. Each module features pre-recorded self-paced lectures and other resource materials. The program also features ongoing opportunities to meet with the certificate lead faculty for drop-in interactive question-and-answer session.
For the live interactive sessions, participants require access to high-speed Internet and a computer with a camera and microphone. You do not need special skills to participate successfully in a distance-learning environment. We will provide detailed, user-friendly instructions and technical support.
We are dedicated to prioritizing the accessibility needs of participants in this program. If you have any questions or concerns related to your learning needs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
