Trauma psychotherapy training in either or both EMDR or TRM. Two specialized certificate programs are offered that provide advanced psychotherapy skills for working with those with complex trauma and dissociation. TRM is based on the biology of resilience and helps one learn how to restore balance to the body and the mind after traumatic experiences. TRM is research-informed and was named a promising practice by the Department of Defense. Somatic work combined with EMDR Therapy are powerful tools that can be integrated into any therapist’s practice. EMDR Therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapy for trauma. These trainings are offered by recognized experts in trauma treatment. Separate certificates of completion for Basic Training in EMDR from EMDRIA and for the Trauma Resiliency Model from the Trauma Resource Institute will be awarded to those who complete Parts 1 & 2 of each training. Upon completion of all 4 trainings, participants will receive a Certificate in Integrative Trauma Psychotherapy from Fairfield University.
40 CEs awarded for the EMDR training. This program has been approved for Continuing Education Credit Hours by the National Association of Social Workers, CT and meets the continuing education criteria for CT Social Work Licensure renewal. Approval also meets the continuing education criteria for CT LMFTs, LPCs, and licensed psychologists. These contact hours are accepted by the ANCC for recertification for PMHNPs. 36 CEs are offered for the TRM training by The Trauma Resource Institute.
