Essentials of Trauma Treatment Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) Training Course
Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP)!
Your trauma clients are desperate to move beyond the terror and isolation of their traumatic experiences. But the impact of trauma reshapes the brain and body, resulting in lasting wounds and unexpected triggers—and a life of incomprehensible anxiety, fear, shame, rage, substance abuse, and relationship difficulties.
But there’s good news! Thanks to advances in neuroscience, attachment research, and decades of clinical work, you can offer trauma survivors freedom from the painful memories that have hijacked their lives—so clients can experience a new sense of safety and purpose.
In this online certification training, you’ll join world-leading treatment experts, including Peter Levine, John and Julie Gottman, Deany Laliotis, Mary Jo Barrett, Frank Anderson, and Anita Mandley—to gain in-depth insight and skills that will help traumatized adults, children, and couples regulate their arousal and regain mastery over their lives.
Through six comprehensive modules, you’ll learn:
- The most effective, scientifically backed strategies to overcome trauma
- The core skills that determine a clinician’s success
- How to create a safe therapeutic environment for your clients
- How to work with cultural and historical wounds
You’ll end this training with the education you need to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and the skills to transform traumatic wounds.
Through clinical demonstrations, in-session videos, and practical exercises, you’ll learn exactly what to say and do to help even your most challenging trauma cases.
