The HEARTS Professional Learning Institute builds the capacity of school staff across the country to implement HEARTS principles and approaches for creating trauma-informed, safe, supportive, and equitable learning and teaching environments that foster resilience, wellness, and racial justice for everyone in the school community. A collaboration between UCSF HEARTS and ETR, the Institute provides free, ongoing virtual training, consultation, and technical assistance to participating school teams. Participants of the two-year HEARTS Institute gain the knowledge and skills to implement trauma-informed practices, procedures, and policies that are tailored to their local school communities.
