The Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP) course will introduce you to the professional tools and strategies to treat survivors of trauma within a family context. You will understand the importance of developing the connection and improving the quality of stability between the children and their family members to overcome traumatic events.
Learn how the family has the capacity to serve as a source of protection regarding a family member’s ability to recover from trauma and identify family level needs and strengths to support positive outcomes. You will also explore what trauma symptoms look like, how to address and treat the underlying cause of the trauma and how they may be triggered.
This course is led by a professional instructor, who will take you through step-by-step, cutting edge approaches of addressing and resolving traumatic stress, as well as minimising any chance of re-traumatisation during service provision.
