As the field becomes more aware of the prevalence of trauma across the lifespan, the need for trauma-informed and responsive systems-based therapists is great. The MFTs Working with Trauma Interest Network exists to build a network of MFTs, from trauma informed to those treating trauma with competency.
This Interest Network will support MFTs at all levels. Therapists interested in increasing their skills and networking with others will benefit from the Network's activities, which include:
· Online networking and resource library
· Web-based trainings for those at all levels of professional development
· Review of public resources used by AAMFT during trauma events in the community
· Evaluation of state trauma education and training requirements.
