The Certified Trauma Specialist Course

Create Safety In Your Environments with Trauma Informed Care

Becoming a Certified Trauma Recovery Specialist helps you relate to this desperately under-served global community. As a professional in many industries for the last 30 years, I have encountered thousands of adult survivors needing and wanting to better help 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.
