Promoting improved services for troubled youth

since 1982

BICA offers a wide variety of training opportunities to meet your professional development needs. Trainings are typically offered:


  • Through BICA (often at the Goldstein Memorial Library in Roseville, MN)
  • In conjunction with a conference or convention
  • Contracted by another organization or group (privately-contracted trainings may or may not be open to outside registrations)


BICA Certified Trainings are often flexible to meet your timeframe, budget and learning objectives.

BICA uses a three-phase model of training that promotes durable and sustainable outcomes for youth and maintains high levels of treatment fidelity (i.e., ensuring that interventions are implemented accurately over time).
