National Institute for Trauma & Loss in Children
The National Institute of Trauma & Loss in Children (TLC) is a branch of the Starr Global Learning Network (SGLN) which has a long history of providing trainings for schools, crisis teams, children & family counselors, and private practitioners to help traumatized children and families. SGLN’s interventions are based on Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents, and their Parents (SITCAP) model. The focus is on stabilizing the crisis or experience of trauma and providing evidence based interventions to support healing after a traumatic event. The SITCAP model can be successfully applied across diverse cultures and in various settings, including clinics and schools. At present, these interventions are used world-wide. For more information on SGLN, please visit their website.
Dr. Woods has been a Certified Trainer for TLC since 2013. She is able to provide courses for SGLN that lead to Level-1 Certified Trauma Practitioner for either Clinical or Educational streams. She has also developed training materials specific to supporting Indigenous children and teens. The SITCAP model supports the Indigenous child’s worldview and allows healing to come from within the child and their culture. Below is a list of courses that Dr. Woods is able to provide for individuals seeking to learn more about trauma or professionals seeking certification.
