WorkforceGPS, a project of the Federal Department of Labor, has curated a list of resources regarding trauma-informed practice and how this technique can be used to improve learner retention. These resources include: 

  • Video explaining how trauma negatively impacts human functioning, what trauma-informed care is, and what practitioners can do to improve outcomes
  • Tip sheet on creating Trauma-Informed retention strategies for your program
  • E-Guide to using trauma-informed techniques in your program
  • Video addressing why a Trauma-Informed approach is important
  • Web library of resources and case studies that validate the use of trauma-informed techniques in improving learner outcomes

WorkforceGPS has categorized these resources under the heading of “Youth Apprenticeship Readiness," though all resources are applicable to any learner population or program seeking to learn about or incorporate Trauma-Informed Care.
