Free online classes through Child Trauma Academy

Research and study at the University of Chicago and the Baylor College of Medicine has revealed the complexities and multi-dimensional nature of the problems of childhood abuse and neglect.

The Child Trauma Academy started out as a university-based, medical model working group, but then evolved into an independent, not-for-profit "community of practice."

Their online university offers free online courses.

Right now, the courses they are offering are:
1.) "The Amazing Human Brain and Human Development"
2.) "Surviving Childhood: An Introduction to the Impact of Trauma"
3.) "The Cost of Caring: Secondary Traumatic Stress and the Impact of Working With High-Risk Children and Families"
4.) "Bonding and Attachment in Maltreated Children"
