Training and Continuing Education

The ASU REACH Institute provides education, training, and on-line support in intervention services and assessment systems. The ASU REACH Institute focuses on families undergoing stressful transitions, experiencing stress due to immigration and acculturation, and families with children with serious mental health and health behavior challenges. Our intervention services can be implemented in public schools, the court system, welfare agencies, community mental health clinics, hospice, military services, and pediatric health care settings. We work collaboratively with organizations to assess their needs and tailor trainings accordingly. Continuing Education credits are available.

Who can use it?

Anyone who works with children ages 5-18 who may have experienced a traumatic event, including:

  • Clinicians
  • Case workers
  • Educators

How does it work?

The Traumatic Stress Screen for Children and Adolescents (TSSCA) tool features five simple questions to measure children’s traumatic stress.
