HRSA Project TeamUP

The Department of Counseling & Marital and Family Therapy (CMFT), in collaboration with the Hahn School of Nursing (HSON), at the University of San Diego (USD), was awarded two federal training grants by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA). The Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHW) and Opioid Workforce Expansion Program (OWEP) grants have allowed the CMFT Department to provide additional training and workshops to students, alums, faculty, and community partners for free. The overall grant initiative is known as Project TeamUP!


We are passing along an incredible training opportunity hosted by the Integrated Behavioral Health Education and Leadership program (B-HEAL), Department of Social Work, at CSUF. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk will present on The Body Keeps the Score: Trauma, Attachment, and Neuroscience on Friday, April 21st, 8:30 AM -1 PM, via Zoom
B-HEAL and Project TeamUP collaborate as HRSA grant-funded programs. B-HEAL was kind enough to extend this offer to USD students. We hope you will join, and if you do, we’d like to ask you to remain mindful that you will represent USD and Project TeamUP. Please take a look at the details below/attached, which include instructions on how to registerPlease note – Project TeamUP is hosting session 1 of the “Job Search, Resume/CV Preparation & Navigating the BBS” workshop at the same time. If you need to change your registration for that event, please re-register for the Monday, April 24th, 9:00 am – 12:30 pm session!

Final Workshop of the Academic Year!

What is a Project TeamUP Workshop?

Project TeamUP workshops focus on a particular presenting issue, modality, population, or combination of the three. Workshops vary in scheduling as they are longer, more in-depth training facilitated by content experts. Project TeamUP is a certified Continuing Education Provider with the California Psychological Association, and select workshops offer CE credits to licensed psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional clinical counselors.

In addition to the description below, I’ve attached the promotional flyer for the event if you would like more information.
