The free training — brought to campus by Dr. Audrey Hokoda, Senate Distinguished Professor at San Diego State University in the Department of Child and Family Development (CFD) — provided three days of interactive problem-based learning simulations designed to build the skills needed to effectively work with children and families exposed to traumatic stress.
