The Maine Resilience Building Network offers a range of educational  opportunities for professionals, parents, and community members. These trainings are intended to build skills and knowledge about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs),  protective factors and resilience, trauma-informed care practices, individual and organizational wellness, and other topics that improve the wellbeing of all community members. 

MRBN is dedicated to providing education across many sectors as part of a broad public health approach to address trauma and social determinants of health. All trainings are evidence-based, trauma-informed, and tailored for those who work in education, healthcare (including behavioral health), social services, community-based organizations, civic leadership or business community. All of our work is data-informed through a number of sources, and when available we offer county and local community level data.  

MRBN provides technical assistance to organizations and communities to become a more trauma-informed system. Technical assistance includes awareness training, policy and practice review, and practice implementation. MRBN takes a strength-based approach which is grounded in cultural humility and a strong recognition that positive experiences and environments are essential to the health and well-being of systems.

All trainings are tailored to specific needs of each sector and include strategies and tools that move participants from understanding to action. Upon requesting a training, MRBN will schedule a call to discuss training goals, audience members, program fees, and scheduling.

Training topics include:

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Resilience Building Strategies

Trauma-informed Practices

Cultivating Youth Mattering

Reducing Stigma & Shame

Connection Between ACEs & Substance Use

Integrative Wellness 

Others upon request

We look forward to working with you to determine the best training approach for your business, group, or organization. For more information and to schedule your training, please contact
