Target Audience

This program is post-graduate level, providing the very latest, cutting-edge information on the core topics in the field of trauma, including key approaches to treatment and intervention techniques.

The Trauma Center at JRI recommends that practitioners be licensed mental health providers who are currently seeing clients or providing mental health services.

The program is at an intermediate level; very well-trained practitioners who are already specialists in traumatic stress will also benefit highly from the context, flow and experiential aspects of the training.

Unlicensed and affiliated professionals with appropriate training and/or practical experience who work with trauma-impacted populations may also benefit.
