Professional Development Trainings & Workshops

Our Professional Development trainings and workshops are nationally recognized as merging evidenced-based practices with practical techniques, leaving participants empowered and with increased skills, knowledge, and strategy related to content implementation and sustainment. Our trainers are industry experts and utilize the “Sage Way”, developing workshops that allow participants to reflect on current practices, strengths, and challenges, collaborate as a way to create an active learning environment, and create accountability inter-agency strategies to sustain workshop objectives and outcomes. Our workshops and trainings are tailored to meet the specific needs of agencies and the unique skills of participants. We also provide specialized trainings for corporate executives,  supervisors, Judges & Magistrates, Doctors and Nurses, School and City Police, Peer Advocates, and even clients, including adults receiving services, parents (biological, kinship care, and resource), and youth and student workshops.
