Master the essentials of effective trauma treatment and become a
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.

Peter Levine on Healing from the Bottom Up: How to Help Clients Access Resource States
Join world-renowned trauma pioneer Peter Levine to learn how to help clients move beyond trauma by accessing safe and positive resource states instead of repeatedly experiencing threats. In this module, you’ll focus on specific tools for reading clients’ psychological and physical cues, using their natural instincts to heal and rebalance their physiology. You’ll explore:
  • How to use Somatic Experiencing (SE) techniques for systematically observing clients' nonverbal responses
  • Strategies to guide clients in "riding the waves" of their sensations as they experience release from their original trauma
  • How to adjust your interventions to maximize impact and avoid retraumatizing vulnerable clients
John and Julie Gottman on The Gottman Method Approach to Treating Trauma
Whether caused by early abandonment, childhood abuse, military combat, or other traumatic experiences, the impact of trauma on committed relationships is commonly encountered in clinical practice. In this module, therapy pioneers John and Julie Gottman will help you explore how to interweave individual PTSD treatment with the interpersonal orientation of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. You’ll discover how to:
  • Better recognize the signs of trauma and the impact it has on a relationship
  • Help one or both partners surface and address past trauma
  • Foster the couple’s transformation of trauma into greater compassion for each other, deeper insight, and meaningful growth
Deany Laliotis on Mastering the Craft of Treating Trauma: Four Core Skills
Join world-renowned trauma expert and EMDR instructor Deany Laliotis for a comprehensive understanding of the core skills that determine a clinician’s effectiveness with trauma. This module will identify and explore the clinical skills that transcend therapy approaches, bringing together all that we know about trauma treatment. You’ll discover:
  • How to increase your ability to track and respond to a client’s moment-to-moment experience, including during extreme states of distress
  • How to rise to the challenge of negotiating with difficult parts of the client’s inner self that can become activated without warning
  • The importance of helping clients access their strengths and reinforce their resilience, instead of allowing trauma to define them
Mary Jo Barrett on The Essentials of Effective Trauma Treatment: How to Go Beyond Technique
When it comes to working with trauma, what determines effectiveness are crucial dimensions of the therapeutic relationship that go beyond any technical intervention. In this module, leading trauma expert Mary Jo Barrett will teach you what trauma clients themselves say about the key elements in their own experience of healing. You’ll focus on:
  • Recognizing the client’s natural cycle of change so you can organize therapy around it
  • Procedures for creating a secure, safe attachment
  • How to emphasize clients’ resources to create an effective treatment plan
Frank Anderson on Treating Trauma Clients at the Edge: How Brain Science Can Inform Interventions
Therapists often get shaken and lose confidence in their approach when a client’s trauma response edges into seemingly uncontrollable extremes of rage, panic, or suicidal desperation. This module provides an essential road map for treating difficult trauma cases through a detailed exploration of the neurobiological processes of hyperarousal and withdrawal underlying extreme symptoms. In this module, you’ll discover how to:
  • Stay clear and calm while working with clients in extreme states
  • Determine when to slow things down and hand over control vs. when you need to be bigger than the extreme symptom
  • Decide when to work from the top-down and when to work from the bottom-up when working with trauma
Anita Mandley on Cultural and Historical Traumas - Invisible Barriers to Healing and Change
Cultural and historical trauma influences your work more than you think, especially if you work with people of color, war survivors, refugees or their descendants. Join diversity expert Anita Mandley as she brings these issues out of the shadows and into consciousness and opens a new path toward addressing the hidden grief of cultural and historical wounds. You’ll discover how to:
  • Assess the impact of cultural and historical traumas on clients and yourself
  • Move clients from reflexive reactivity to a place of connection and coherence
  • Uncover the survival narrative and move to a strengths-based process of change
