Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline:  1-844-CO-4-KIDS  (1-844-264-5437)


Our staff is qualified to provide trainings in a range of topics, many of which are listed below. DCAC offers great flexibility – including sessions in Spanish – to meet the needs of organizations throughout the state.

Trainings that Fit Your Needs

DCAC staff have continued to provide customized trainings in a variety of virtual forms since the onset of COVID-19. We provide trainings and consultation for professionals and community members about the causes of trauma, its impact on children, and how to build trauma-sensitive environments in day care, schools, homes, and anywhere that children live, learn and play.

We specialize in supporting adults who are not mental health specialists but who work with traumatized children—day care providers, educators, foster parents, and people in law enforcement and social services. Even with the best intentions, adults can exacerbate, rather than ameliorate, child trauma, especially if they are unaware that the child is traumatized.
