Seneca Institute for Advanced Practice provides an array of specialty trainings. Trainings are offered at large event venues, program sites or local education institutions. Trainings include:
  • National experts present on topics such as permanency, resiliency, child trauma, evidence based practices, and many more. All courses provide licensed clinicians with Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) continuing education units, whilst many courses also provide Group Home Administrator (GHA) units and Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) continuing education units for certified personnel.


  • The Allied Interventions (All-In!) Partnership Project offers professional development to educators throughout California on topics related to the implementation of a multi-tiered intervention model to support the needs of all students in school.  The All-In! team can provide trainings in a variety of areas including, special education compliance, differentiation of instructional practices to meet the needs of all learners, school culture and climate and supporting students with challenging behaviors.  In addition, experienced school administrators can provide school leadership support on areas related to school systems planning and leveraging community based resources to increase services for students. Training may occur during planned professional development sessions or through ongoing consultation, coaching, mentoring and reciprocal teaching opportunities.


  • The Intensive Treatment Foster Care (ITFC) program offers trainings in Alameda County. The training brings together caregivers to increase understanding of foster youth’s experiences, expand strategies for providing care, and provide opportunities for care providers to learn from each other. The training series is trauma informed, culturally reflective and emphasizes foster youth’s need for lifelong connections.  Foster parents and group home employees are invited to attend the ITFC training series. Foster parent applicants must complete Seneca’s 40 hours from the program’s pre-certification training curriculum in order to become certified to provide foster care. These 40 hours include 12 training modules as well as training in CPR/First Aid. Certified foster parents must then complete 32 hours of specified post-certification training within the first year after certification. Each year thereafter, foster parents must complete 12 hours of continuing education in order to re-certify as foster parents with Seneca.


  • Group Home Administrator and Staff trainings support group homes in meeting Community Care Licensing requirements. We offer in-house staff training series that can be customized to meet individual program needs. In addition Seneca is an approved provider of the Group Home Administrator 40-Hour Initial Certification training, offering training that qualifies for GHA Continuing Education Units. Monthly GHA CEU seminars that meet CCL recertification requirements provide a venue to obtain the GHA units as well as network with other providers. Participants in these trainings will receive certificates verifying that they have received GHA CEUs. Group Homes (Alameda, Solano & Monterey County providers): Seneca trainers can come to your site and work with you to develop a training program suited to your agency’s specific needs. Group home staff will receive certificates verifying their completion of training hours. To learn more, please email training@senecacenter.org, or call (510) 654-4004 x 2244.
