To support more organizations in becoming trauma-informed and to sustain practices that help their clients and employees to thrive, the Bounce Coalition has developed Bounce University, a two-day “train the trainer” program that enables participants to teach the Bounce curriculum. Participants learn to present Bounce’s evidence-based, interactive learning modules, foundational to building trauma-informed individuals, systems, and communities.
Upon completion of 16 hours of Bounce University training, participants are asked to demonstrate the acquisition of the knowledge and skills required to become a Certified Bounce Trainer by: 1) completing an objective assessment that measures understanding of the key learning objectives (with immediate feedback on performance); and 2) presenting portions of the Bounce content to the training team and classmates in a simulated training environment to ensure content is delivered with a high degree of fidelity and competence.
