Keeping it Real: Integrating Trauma Informed Simulations into CAST Courses

A session at Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Summit

  • Jerry Dunn

Thursday 23rd June, 2016

2:45pm to 4:15pm (EST)

One goal of CAST programs is to create a generation of child serving professionals who are more trauma-informed than any generation of graduates before them. CAST courses provide a unique opportunity for instructors to bring the "Real World" into the classroom through simulations of scenarios which child protection teams are likely to encounter in their work. Learn how a CAST program integrates three experiential learning exercises to compliment traditional lecture based instruction: 1) A sexual abuse disclosure and response; 2) A child abuse and neglect investigation utilizing a "mock house" and 3) Interacting with a family to follow up on a child abuse and neglect hotline.
