In this certification program, you will be given the most current information on the biopsychosocial phenomenon of trauma and training in how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to clients, given the parameters of the workplace.

The objective with clients who have experienced a single incident trauma is to help clients recover to base-line functioning by using psychoeducation and symptom management strategies.
The objective with clients, who have experienced complex/developmental trauma, is to mitigate layers of human suffering that has manifested in entrenched rigid maladaptive patterns. Our work with clients is to bring clarity to the origin, presence and manifestations of these patterns and to develop a systematic process for changing the core belief system/schema that drives these patterns.
The Certificate in Trauma Counselling for Front-Line Workers is designed for experienced front-line workers (nurses, clergy, social workers, residential workers, addiction counselors) who provide short-term (non-psychotherapy) counseling contact with vulnerable populations in community based settings.
