We aim to ensure survivors receive comprehensive, holistic services from TASSC,
as well as from the broader community of providers from whom they might receive services.
Trauma Training for Organizations and Teams
TASSC's leadership team boasts years of experience working with survivors of trauma. Our staff are experts in the provision of trauma-informed, strength-based and culturally-competent services. At TASSC, we have two primary goals:
1) To provide comprehensive, holistic services to the survivors of torture we work with; and,
2) To equip the broader community with the knowledge, training and skills to serve and work with survivors of trauma.
If you are an individual or agency located in the DC Metro region and interested in receiving training on TASSC's model of care to support the community you serve, TASSC staff will come to you.
TASSC provides unique training opportunities to professionals working with survivors of trauma so that they:
Understand and utilize the trauma-informed model;
Understand and utilize the strengths-based approach to service delivery;
Are culturally sensitive and practice cultural humility; and,
Work as part of an interdisciplinary team.
While our expertise stems from working with survivors of torture through our core programs (Social Services, Health and Psychological Wellness, and Legal Services), we welcome invitations to train professionals from a variety of disciplines serving different communities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you are interested in applying our model to your work.
