Our training is centered around creating trauma-responsive courtrooms to reduce the harm and the re-victimization that, too often, plays out in legal proceedings.

Requirements to Participate

If you're interested in MOSAICS TTA here are a few things to consider:

  • TTA is a time commitment. You will need a commitment from all court staff and justice professionals to participate in TTA. This includes:
    • Completing a survey about court practices and procedures (1 hour)
    • Interviews with training faculty (0.5 - 1 hour per interview)
    • Being present for the entirety of direct TTA (several hours to three days)
  • TTA involves implementing change over time. Court teams should be committed to applying what they learn in TTA to their own practices and programs.
    • MOSAICS staff will help courts develop a strategic plan to manage changes and provide follow-up assistance
    • After TTA, court staff will hold any needed additional meetings with stakeholders, create new tools or policy guides, and other activities to put the changes into practice
