The Certified Trauma Specialist Course

Create Safety In Your Environments with Trauma Informed Care

Trauma informed care is much needed in every part of the globe. Millions of people around the world are subjected to long term interpersonal abuse such as childhood abuse, childhood emotional neglect, domestic violence and sexual assault every year. In the United States alone 700,000 children are abused and neglected every year.

Much of this abuse goes ignored. As they become adults, these children learn to do the best they can to survive, provide for themselves and their families. Many suffer in silence with mental health issues such as Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as problems with relationships, jobs, handling emotions, developing identity and self-worth.

Becoming a Certified Trauma Recovery Specialist helps you relate to this desperately under-served community. As a professional in many industries for the last 30 years, I have encountered thousands of adult survivors needing and wanting to better understand themselves, their personal and professional relationships, and how they relate to the world around them. Becoming a Certified Trauma Recovery Specialist can meet this need competently and ethically.

Are you ready to learn more about trauma and its impact on people?  Would your workplace, relationships and/or Self benefit from understanding why things go off the rails when working with people?  Have you been looking for a high quality, accessible, and affordable trauma certification that models and teaches safety, how to show up with curiosity, and feel a sense of community?
