Trauma-Informed Professional Practice (TIPP) Certificate Training Program

  • Trauma-Informed Professional Practice (TIPP) Certificate Training Program

The Trauma-Informed Professional Practice (TIPP) Certificate Training Program for Mental Health Professionals is designed to assist helping professionals in their quest to understand the impact of trauma in the lives of those they support. With the overall purpose of developing and strengthening trauma-informed practices, participants will gain knowledge to help them increase psychological and emotional safety in their professional spaces. The course consists of 16 video-based modules
created to help participants gain an understanding of trauma, trauma reactions, and the physiological effects of trauma.

Additionally, participants will learn information about trauma-informed practices and build skills specific to their profession. Experts in the mental health field collaborated with CED's NCA-STAR to share their knowledge and experience as trainers for this course. Participants will hear from researchers, educators, and practitioners who will help to deepen the understanding of trauma. Learners will gain insight into the impact of trauma on diagnosis, assessment, and evidence-based practices. With each hour of content, engagement in the course happens in a combination of ways including watching recordings, reading, taking content quizzes, and participating in discussion boards and reflective activities.
