Child First

Starting in June 2018, Dr. Berman will be the coordinator of ChildFirst for the State of Pennsylvania. The trainings will be held within the Psychology Department of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. While the trainings are for first responders such as police officers, EMTs, children and youth workers, prosecutors, judges, and other professionals who deal with immediate situations involving interpersonal violence, undergraduate and graduate students at IUP will have the opportunity to volunteer at the trainings and meet potential colleagues and employers as well as determine if becoming a professional who deals with cases of interpersonal violence is a good career path for them.

The next ChildFirst PA training will be May 20-24, 2019
