|This series is a multidisciplinary training program for those who work with trauma survivors of abuse, violence, war, accident, crime and disaster. It consists of 84 clock hours of classroom instruction presented in two 42-hour courses. All instructors have been involved in diverse areas of trauma counseling with a variety of traumatized populations in acute to chronic situations. Courses may be taken for graduate or continuing education credit, which may also be used for licensing and certification requirements. The program is open to clinicians and practitioners in the medical, mental and behavioral health services as well as social service, pastoral and bereavement counselors who work with survivors of substance use, eating disorders, physical illness, criminal justice, rehabilitation, and recovery.
Completion of the two Trauma Counseling courses results in a Certificate of Completion, which may be used to apply for certification as a Trauma Services Specialist or Trauma Specialist with the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists.
