After surviving a childhood of unspeakable sexual abuse, unrelenting violence, and betrayal by systems that were charged with helping, Tonier Cain is now an internationally-recognized, trauma-informed care expert. Ms. Cain’s work has focused on heightening awareness of the characteristics and effects of trauma and improving the performance of service providers, businesses, government agencies and others who interact with trauma victims and survivors. As Ms. Cain shares her experiences, audiences have found themselves challenging their professional and personal beliefs.
On February 24th, at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, Tonier Cain will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 CIT Conference.
Many law enforcement agencies, mental health professionals and advocates have joined in partnerships to establish Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT). Effective CIT program implementation in NC is critical for improving the interactions and outcomes for those that experience mental health crisis in our communities.
The theme for the 2022 CIT Conference is “Faithful to Our History, Preparing for Our Future.” We will look to our roots to see why CIT has become the gold standard for crisis response, while examining new and exciting models that will enhance our programs.
