Description

Become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional in Complex PTSD (CCTP-II) and demonstrate your expertise in treating this population of trauma clients.

While the focus of many trauma trainings is to acquire the basic skills for treating posttraumatic stress, the focus of this intensive Certification Course recording is acquiring skills for effectively treating those challenging clients with complex posttraumatic stress, or C-PTSD.

You will learn evidence-based practices to help heal complex trauma, including difficult symptoms such as intense abreactions/flashbacks; severe “depression-like” shutdown and avoidance; dissociation; relational difficulties and challenges; chronic emotional and somatic dysregulation; chronic pain and psychotic symptoms.

You will leave this recording with a new structure you can apply to the entire treatment course for someone with C-PTSD that pulls from today’s most effective trauma treatment modalities. You will learn how to accelerate treatment with this all-encompassing model, instead of getting stuck trying to use just one trauma treatment modality that may not work for every client.

BONUS!

Watch this training and apply the education hours towards complex trauma certification!

This training counts toward the educational hours required for certification as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level II (CCTP-Level II)!
