This Certification is reflective of a recognition that there are real and frequent medical ramifications to the person experiencing trauma, toxic stress and adversity.

This certification addresses the educational information related to the therapeutic complexities that show up with clients who have experienced repeated relational violations, such as difficulty with trust, boundary violations and early attachment related issues.
