Children who enter the child welfare system are at a greater risk for traumatic experiences, and it is essential for child welfare social workers interacting with this population to be effective in using trauma-informed care practices to mitigate retraumatization. The purpose of this study was to explore the impacts of training and workforce development opportunities on San Bernardino County child welfare social workers’ attitudes towards trauma-informed care. This project was conducted using a quantitative design and data was collected using an anonymous online questionnaire using Qualtrics. The data was analyzed using SPSS version 21. There were no statistically significant results of this study, indicating training and workforce development opportunities did not impact social workers’ attitudes towards trauma-informed care. Results indicate further research is needed, and the recommendation is to conduct research into which factors may influence social workers’ attitudes towards trauma-informed care practices.
