Trauma-Responsive Care Certification

The Tristate Trauma Network is committed to increasing the practice of trauma-responsive care in our community. Trauma-responsive care goes beyond understanding trauma and its effects to providing interventions that seek to alleviate trauma symptoms and lead to a higher level of functioning. TTN has chosen to partner with Finding Hope Consulting, LLC to provide its first type of Trauma Certification to practitioners: Trauma-Responsive Care Certification (TRCC).

What is TRCC – Hear Mary Vicario, LPCC-S of Finding Hope Consulting, LLC describe the course and achievements.
