What’s the purpose of creating CTT/CPT credentialing?

The aim of CTT/CTP® Certification is to provide clinicians and treatment specialists with expert knowledge in the field of treatment for complex PTSD and addiction improving their assessment and intervention skills working with this challenging, and growing, population. This training is a way of standardizing Best Practices and keeping pace with the expanding knowledge base as the CTT/CPT requires on-going training.

How is this practical for me in my practice or in my field work?

This training offers professionals a number of practical approaches and techniques to utilize in their practices or agencies for assessing and treating this fragile population. It is estimated that 30% of clients entering treatment have PTSD/trauma issues that go unrecognized and ignored (Van Der Kolk 2002). Further, this training helps protect those who work directly with trauma survivors from secondary PTSD.

What can I expect to gain from this commitment?

This training provides a wealth of recent research material and empirical information crucial to the appropriate diagnosis and treatment for this growing population. This certification is an accomplishment of excellence in both the foundation theories of PTSD/Trauma and in practical applications of interventions.

What’s involved in getting a CTT/CTP®?

There will be a training cycle of five, 5 day long modules held throughout the year. It is best to do the training modules consecutively, however you can make up modules during future training cycles. We do not allow participants to begin the training cycle past Module 2. Each Module will be experiential. Three of these week long seminars will focus on various aspects of assessing and treating the various expressions of PTSD/Trauma. The Modules are designed to be thorough and intense.

The final Module will be a review of the entire course.
