Trauma-Responsive Care Certification

Going beyond understanding trauma and its effects

Finding Hope Consulting partners with organizations to provide training, consultation, and Trauma Responsive Care certification assistance to anyone working with individuals with complex trauma of all ages and ability levels.

This is not a “train and go” certification model.  It is a, learn, practice, receive feedback, and master model.  


This course is closed for enrollment


Grow Your Resilience

The Trauma Responsive Care Certification turns the uninformed question "What’s wrong with you?" into the trauma-informed question: "What happened to you?" Then it goes further to the trauma responsive question, "What did you do to survive?"

Informative and practical, our two-day Foundational training and twelve -session Theory to Practice (T2P) Series combines training with consultation.  This structure allows you to immediately apply your learning to your daily interactions with those you serve as well as grow in familiarity with the Trauma Informed Biographical Timelines (TIBT) process. 

It then allows you to bring feedback to your next session, gain more knowledge, develop new techniques, and return to work to implement new strategies.  

This series has been so successful the Tristate Trauma Network (TTN) sponsors it as a Trauma Responsive Care Certification.

What People Are Saying

Mary is an amazing trainer. She was easy to listen and relate to. I retained the knowledge because we were led to apply the information to our personal lives and the people we work with right away.

The Trauma Responsive Care Certification has given me a sturdy foundation that I will have as a tool for the rest of my life.

- TRCC Participant and Social Worker


This training allowed me to help others in a positive matter... to see the person's trauma and not the behavior by asking the question: "WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM?"

- Rhonda, Supervisor
