Trauma Informed Policy and Practice (Graduate Certificate)

A new graduate certificate has been developed for Spring 2020.

The UNH Trauma Informed Policy and Practice Graduate Certificate Program will prepare scholars enrolled in social work and/or education graduate programs, or current professionals in the field, in research-based practices and systems change strategies to improve outcomes for children and youth with significant support needs, including those with emotional and behavioral challenges (EBC), developmental and intellectual disabilities, autism, sensory, and other learning disabilities. The NH DOE identified school-based personnel shortages in school social workers and special educators trained in emotional and behavioral disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and other learning disabilities. The TIPP Program will respond to these challenges as the only advanced graduate certificate in the country addressing the need for trauma informed professionals supporting the needs of school age children, youth, and their families.
