CCSI provides training and implementation support on an increasing number of topics designed to help organizations understand, implement and sustain practices aimed at improving the way care is provided. Our training team members have experience working directly in clinical or program settings, so they combine deep content knowledge in their particular areas of expertise with a solid appreciation for the challenges associated with learning and implementing new ways of delivering services in “real world” settings. In addition, in partnership with our Quality Improvement Team, CCSI can also offer practical ways for organizations to assess the impact of their training investment on care quality and outcomes. Some of our current training offerings are described briefly below with additional updates coming soon.
CCSI is an approved continuning education provider through the State Education Department and many of our trainings are CEU eligible for Licensed Masters Social Works (LMSWs) and Licensed Clinical Social Wrokers (LCSWs) in New York State. Additionally, we also offer CASAC credits for several of our trainings for those who are eligible.
TRUST (Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool) is a strengths-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming trauma-informed. The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-informed care practices within their organization. TRUST allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff and display these results within a concise, real-time report along with recommendations for bolstering Trauma-Informed Care practice.

TRUST-S (Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool for Schools) is a strength-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides educational settings with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming more trauma-sensitive and informed. The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-sensitive educational practices. The TRUST-S allows schools and districts to view aggregated survey results from their administration and staff. These results are displayed within a concise, real-time report that offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-sensitive practices. This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking, as well as repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify next steps. Click here to learn more and register.
