ATN Announces New PD Collaborative

The Attachment & Trauma Network (ATN) is pleased to launch our Professional Development Collaborative (PD Collaborative), a highly talented group of trauma-informed educational experts available to provide PD training, consultation and support to school districts and organizations embarking on becoming trauma-informed.

These professionals embody expertise in all facets of trauma-informed care and systems implementation including:

  • Trauma-informed practices, policies and leadership
  • Brain-based strategies and interventions
  • Restorative practices
  • Equity and cultural competency
  • Teacher/staff care and mental wellness

“With many schools reaching out to ATN requesting training, it just made sense that we’d work with so many of the experts we know who are doing Professional Development training and ongoing consultation that is helping to create trauma-sensitive schools,” says Julie Beem, ATN’s Executive Director.  “We’re thrilled to be able to connect schools and other organizations with the best in this field!
