Seventy percent of U.S. adults have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives—often before age 18. The results can be disrupted brain development, adoption of at-risk health behaviors, and increased risk for disease, disability, social problems, and physical and mental illness.
In response, social workers and behavioral health providers must understand the many aspects of trauma as evidenced through the latest research. This program is designed for mental health professionals or advanced graduate students who are actively providing therapeutic services to clients.
In the NASW VA/Metro DC Professional Certification in Trauma and Resilience Informed Care training program, you will receive 37.5 hours of in-depth training covering foundational therapeutic skills critical to all client work, especially those clients with histories of violated safety and security. The program will help you learn and integrate evidence-informed trauma and resilience treatment skills into your everyday practices.
