Seventy percent of U.S. adults have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives—often before age 18. The results can be disrupted brain development, adoption of at-risk health behaviors, and increased risk for disease, disability, social problems, and physical and mental illness.
The NASW-NJ Trauma Certificate program is a 20 hour program of in-depth training covering foundational therapeutic skills, neuro-biological, psychological and somatic impacts of trauma and more. This is an interactive program featuring case scenarios, best practices and breakout groups.
The program includes 4 hours of self-study prerequisites which will be sent to you after you register. Live instruction will take place over four 4-hour days, for a total of 20 program hours.
