About this course
Acquiring this certification means that you have learned the essential components for safely and effectively treating traumatic stress with individual adults. While the certification focuses upon acquiring the knowledge and skills for treating PTSD, those becoming certified with the CCTS-I designation will be able to utilize the information and skills to effectively treat all anxiety disorders.
This certification is the first of its kind! While other certifications are focused upon the learning and implementation of a particular method or model of treatment, the CCTS-I designation is an attestation that you have learned how to address posttraumatic stress through the “active ingredients” approach using the Empowerment & Resilience Treatment Structure. The educational components of this certification are focused upon the student gaining competency in treating traumatic stress without needing to choose and utilize any particular model of treatment. Instead, the practitioner who becomes certified has demonstrated that they have acquired the knowledge to treat trauma implementing the common factors, or ‘active ingredients” that are indigenous to all effective treatments. This approach is an accelerated approach to developing competency in treating the many different presentations of traumatic stress.
Successfully completing this certification will allow the practitioner to display the credential of a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist – Individual to inform potential clients and professional peers that you are a clinician who is able to assist survivors in their healing process. It is a mark of distinction in a field that is quickly growing and developing.
