Block B

Best Practice Strategies

These 4 units ensure that a person engaging in crisis intervention or trauma response work obtains the necessary knowledge and skills to appropriately intervene according to one's role and credentials. The context-specific nature of these courses also allows the responder to develop a specialty within the field of traumatology. These courses have been separated into two Tracks to accommodate the different types of participants in the traumatology certificate.

Track I is required for all participants working within education, school counseling, school psychology, medical and ministerial professions. This Track will focus on special needs for the populations these participants serve.

Track II is required for all independent mental health practitioners: licensed marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, clinical social workers, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists. This Track emphasizes best practice strategies for the clinical treatment of individuals and systems severely impacted by traumatic events.
