Coming Soon: A HAT Training Near You!

If you’ve been a friend of First Aid Arts for a while, you’ve probably heard a lot about our Healing Arts Toolkit Program training, seen inspiring photos taken at these events, and read glowing testimonials from attendees. Maybe you’ve even wished you could participate in a training or wondered if it would be right for you.

Today we’re excited to announce four upcoming HAT training events in the next six months, and we want to take this opportunity to invite you to attend.

First, let’s answer a few FAQs.

1. Is the HAT training right for me?

First Aid Arts equips trauma care providers, community workers, and volunteers with arts-based tools and training. If you serve trauma survivors in any capacity, the HAT training is for you.

2. What can I expect from a HAT training?

Our three-day training will expand your understanding of traumatic stress, provide hands on experience with the healing power of the arts, and equip you to facilitate our evidence-based, trauma-informed Healing Arts Toolkit Program. You will also learn about why the expressive arts are effective for trauma care and psycho-social support, and explore the use of arts for sustainable self and staff care.

3. Can I attend with other members from my organization?

Up to three members from any organization can attend together at a discounted rate.

If you have more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Meanwhile, here’s the scoop on our upcoming trainings. Click on the event of your choice for additional details and registration forms:

Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible. And if you know of anyone else you think might be interested, would you pass this information along?

If you’d like to attend but none of these options work for you, be sure to check back often. We add new HAT training events to our website as soon as they are scheduled.

Thanks so much for your friendship and support. We hope to see you at a HAT training soon!
