Trauma-Responsive Care Certification Series 2023 – 2024 Cohort


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). As of December 1, 2021, over 400 professionals have been certified in Trauma-Responsive Care!

The Series will once again be held online to allow for participants to attend from near and far. There are 8 days of training/consultation.

Cost: Registration for the Full 8-day Series plus test & certification application is $900. This rate includes: 30 CEUs for the training portions, access to video recordings of each session, approx. 10 hours small group consultation in a 10:1 ratio, and a 200+ page manual. Payment plan for the full series is available. Please email for the Payment Agreement Form.

Registration Modifications: Attend just the 2-day Foundational for $175  ($150 for TTN Members). If you’ve had the foundational training already, you can choose to attend just the 6 Theory to Practice sessions (Modules 3-8) held after the 2-day foundational for $800. This includes your TRCC competency test & Application.

*All TRCC certified professionals must become individual members of the Tristate Trauma Network by time of application submission.

Thank you to our 2022-2023 All Year Training & Event Sponsor (this can be added to your regular membership)

Finding Hope Consulting, LLC (March 2021-April 2023 Sponsor)

We greatly appreciate the support of this agency founded by Mary Vicario, who has been a supporter of TTN from the beginning. This year Finding Hope added to their membership to become an All Year Training & Event Sponsor. Their additional contribution helps support all of our events.

Through lively and interactive training, Mary Vicario and Finding Hope addresses the gap in training available to communities by bringing neurobiology to life using common language and interventions for clinicians, caseworkers, birth and foster parents, developmental disabilities service providers, and others. In addition to training, Mary Vicario provides “theory to practice” consultation to help immediately apply your learning to daily interactions with those you serve. Finding Hope has strengthened a broad range of organizations with a focus on supporting underserved populations and creating trauma-responsive communities.
