About This Course:

There’s only one assignment inside – submitting a personal narrative reflection, demonstrating that you have absorbed the material by auditing your own life experience.

The narrative is not graded, per se, but each submission is manually reviewed by our TIC mentors and they reserve the right to insist on a deeper self-reflection if they deem the effort to be insufficient.

Once you’ve successfully completed the checkout process, we will provide you instructions for writing and submitting your narrative reflection.

Upon submission, one of our mentors will review the document, provide feedback, and either approve or reject it within two weeks.

    Incredible Course!


    This course was eye-opening and left a great impact on me concerning the importance of becoming trauma-informed. The course was easy to navigate and very comprehensive. I enjoyed hearing from the instructors and appreciated their vulnerability in sharing their own trauma histories. I highly recommend this course to individuals and organizations. I feel better equipped to identify trauma in myself and others. Thank you to the providers!

Does this training provide CEUs?

Kind of yes, kind of no.

CEUs are a tricky thing. There are thousands of governing boards for the hundreds of fields we're trying to reach with TIC. Every one of those boards requires submission, review, approval, etc.

In order to jump through all those hoops we'd need a full time staff member - whose sole job is pleading for board approval. That, in turn, would drive up the cost of the training.

Instead, we've found that asking your governing board to consider approving your training prior to registering has proven successful for many, many learners.

If your board gives the official OK, the training is good for 20 contact hours.

Do I need a degree, professional credentials, are there prerequisites?

Absolutely not.

Our mission is to spread the concepts and practices of TIC to as many people as possible - to get it off the therapist’s couch, if you will.

While TIC has been widely adopted in behavioral health, we feel that anyone who interacts with other humans, be they soldiers, teachers, bus drivers, clergy, administrators, literally anyone, can make the world a better place by employing an understanding of developmental and relational trauma in their work.

All are welcome!

Is TIC an Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)?

Our training is not a single, specific practice.

Instead, it presents a systematic, eclectic framework for healing developmental trauma.

Developed over thirty years of clinical research, this framework's theoretical and clinical components are drawn from a variety of trauma-informed, evidence-based practices including but not limited to:

  • Gestalt Therapy
  • CBT
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • EMDR
  • Polyvagal Theory
  • Internal Family Systems Model
  • Nonviolent Communication
  • Somatic Trauma Therapies
Once certified, will I have to renew every year?

Absolutely not. You're certified for life.

Do I need to purchase the Trauma-Informed Care Practitioner Training course and then the certificate separately?

You can do it either way.

You can purchase the training now and the certification later, spacing out the expense, or buy them both right now.

Just be sure to put the training in your shopping cart first because the checkout process won't allow you to add the certification to your cart unless the training has been added first (or purchased within the last year).

How long do I have to finish the course?

As long as you want! There are no time limits or restrictions.

What is the total cost of the training and certification?

Presently, the total cost for training and certification is $516.

Training: $298

Certification: $218

Upon completion of the training, you have up-to-one year to return and purchase and/or finish the certification process.

Do you offer group pricing?

We do indeed. Contact us for a custom quote.

Are there any Power Points with this course?

No, there are no Power Points with the course, it's all online content delivered via a Learning Management System.

How many hours is the course?

The course is roughly twenty contact hours of instruction.

How long does it take to complete the training?

The training is entirely self-paced. That said, we usually suggest eight weeks as a reasonable time frame.

What is your refund policy?

We want you to be happy with your online learning purchase. If, for whatever reason, you’re not 100% satisfied, simply ask for a refund within 14 days of your purchase and we’ll promptly issue you an almost-full refund. 

Stripe, our payment processor, recently changed their policy on refunds and no longer returns the 3% they charge us to facilitate the transaction.

Therefore, you will receive a 97% refund if you request it within 14 days of purchase.

Note: No refunds will be issued if you’ve completed the training you purchased or received a certificate of any kind.
