Why Choose Us?

Why Choose Our Certificate in Evidence-Based PTSD Program?

Over 50% of the population will experience a traumatic event, and in our client population, that percentage is undoubtedly much higher. As clinicians we treat trauma and PTSD on a weekly basis, and as any trauma specialist knows, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to trauma treatment. While one approach may work for one client, it may be ineffective (or worse!) for another. This leaves many trauma specialists confused and worried;

  • How can we best treat trauma when trauma takes different forms, and when different clients heal differently?
  • What do we do when various therapeutic modalities fail to produce the outcomes you were promised in the trainings?

Treating trauma can be a daunting task, to say the least!

However, there is good news. While we don’t exactly know which therapies will help which clients, we have multiple evidence-based therapies for PTSD to choose from. This comprehensive trauma treatment certification program teaches you the start-to-finish skills of the three giants of evidence-based treatment for PTSD: EMDR, Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).

The National Institutes of Health and the National Institute for PTSD both hail these 3 therapies as the most recommended treatments for PTSD. When you don’t know where to start, why not start with the three therapies that decades of research have shown to be most effective?

EMDR, PE, and CPT have the strongest research support for PTSD, and are often referenced as the primary evidence-based therapies for PTSD. Each is unique, and is built to both conceptualize and treat clients with PTSD in different ways. Thus, learning the core skills from each of these therapies will give you three distinct, powerful approaches to trauma treatment to offer to your clients. In just over 30 self-paced hours, you can complete the entire certification program, which does not require that you pay money over and over just to keep your certificate “current.” We believe that when you’ve gained these practical diagnosis and treatment skills, you don’t lose them after one year, or five years. Just as you don’t have to earn your degree over and over, practical therapy skills and clinical competence are improved over time, not lost, so long as you continue to practice these skills and seek education and consultation when appropriate. If you find that you’re getting a little rusty, or feeling a little tentative, we welcome you to attend our group consultations (up to 4 for FREE included with this program!), retake one or more of your enrolled on-demand program courses at no additional cost, or register for additional courses in our live or home study catalog. Individual consultation sessions are also available with a PTSD expert if you’d like some more individualized help.

When you earn your Certificate in Evidence-Based Treatment for PTSD, it becomes a signal to potential clients (and employers) that you’re ready and excited to help clients recover from trauma using a variety of skills and techniques. And because the certificate doesn’t expire, you don’t have to worry about anyone telling you to stop listing it on your website, directory listings, etc.

We’re eager to help you start your evidence-based PTSD treatment learning adventure! If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
