Trauma and Resilience Training

Richmond, Virginia



IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the current state of our national pandemic we are working to exercise social distancing and minimize potential infections. We are currently only offering remote learning opportunities. This is an exciting opportunity to expand access and the reach to our workshops. Since mid-March 2020, we have had people attend our trainings from all over the United States and the world. 

One out of four children in the United States will experience some sort of trauma by the age of four. Trauma creates changes to our biology, our genetics and epigenetics, our behavior, and ultimately a myriad of lifetime health outcomes. Looking through a trauma-informed lens allows us to have effective interventions to help individuals reach their full potential.

ChildSavers offers a multitude of trauma training opportunities for organizations, businesses, and community leaders. Our Director of Mental Health and Lead Trauma and Resilience Educator, John Richardson-Lauve, LCSW, is available to train in Richmond or around the US.

Since the start of our training efforts in trauma-informed care, over 25,000 people have participated in our workshops and training events, and we have trained over 450 trainers in the curriculum.
