Trauma-Free NYC and NYC Administration for Children Services launched an inter-professional service learning graduate course at the Mailman School of Public Health

This course exemplifies the community-based learning and radical social justice that Mailman teaches.” – Graduate Student enrolled in course, Spring 2019

Trauma-Free NYC, the Mailman School of Public Health, and the NYC Administration for Children’s Services worked together during the Spring 2019 semester to address adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma-informed care (TIC) among key stakeholders in New York City. This inter-professional service learning course was designed to equip graduate students with a solid knowledge base about ACEs and TIC and the professional skills to deliver this key information to frontline workers across NYC. This 3-credit course combined classroom learning with service to the local community. In only six weeks, our graduate students delivered 34 trainings to 786 participants across New York City.

If you are interested in learning more about this work and how your organization could participate, please contact Dr. Danielle Kassow, Senior Program Officer for Trauma-Free NYC at dzk2103@columbia.edu.
