Procedure: Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist-Prenatal (CCTS-P)

The Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist-Prenatal (CCTS-P) certification is designed using evidenced-based leading edge interventions and protocols that clinicians can immediately implement to augment their work treating trauma especially within a family context. It represents knowledge of how trauma, toxic stress and teratogens impact a mother’s body and nervous system before and during pregnancy. The CCTS-P Certification demonstrates knowledge of how and why stress and adversity affect the body and how our bodies react when regulated and dysregulated. The CCTS-P certification will aid clinicians in addressing and resolving client and family traumatic stress even when other primary diagnoses are present.  The design and implementation of treatment can have a powerful transformational effect that rapidly accelerates treatment.
