Trauma-Informed, resiliency-based, and Interprofessional Practice Sequence

Do you want to build expertise and advance your career through graduate-level instruction focused on resiliency-based approaches that are trauma-informed, restorative, and collaborative?

UVM’s College of Education and Social Services offers trauma-informed and resiliency-based coursework through a variety of hybrid-online formats tailored for teachers, social workers, counselors, and other health and human service professionals. Taken individually or as a sequence, the program will focus on learning applied approaches to working with children, families, and communities affected by trauma and adverse life experiences and allow you to:

  • Learn how to build trauma-informed, resilience-fostering schools and organizations that can enhance academic success, social-emotional well-being, and positive youth development.
  • Gain new skills that harness interdisciplinary collaboration to build resilience and impact trauma and adversity.
  • Build a toolkit of evidence-informed strategies for effectively engaging children, youth, and families within and beyond school walls.
  • Earn credits that may be applied to graduate degrees in education or social services at the University of Vermont.

A limited number of scholarships are available for students that enroll in the Fall 2019 and/or Spring 2020 courses. For further information please contact Dr. Jessica Strolin-Goltzman at
