This certification program offers the most comprehensive training on PTSD and Complex Trauma using integrative medicine and nutrition available, anywhere. The course teaches practical, integrative and nutritional interventions that can be combined with trauma-specific modalities.
Trauma is the quintessential mind, brain-body dis-ease. This program provides a roadmap for integrating treatment methods for clinicians working in either mental or physical health disciplines or those seeking to integrate both. The course also bridges theory and application of trauma treatment for clinicians who currently integrate nutrition and advanced integrative approaches into their treatment roadmap by advancing their current interventions.
Participants build a toolkit of clinical interventions supported by evidence-based research that enables them to apply integrative medicine and nutritional methods to treat acute and chronic PTSD, Complex and Developmental Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury in adults and children.
This certification addresses differential diagnosis, co-occurring diagnosis, and mislabeled diagnosis and includes basic knowledge of testing, a basic review and referral for genomic psychopharmacology, neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances, food sensitivities, and environmental exposures.
In addition to a video presentation, in this course, you will find demonstration videos of assessment and intervention with live models, handouts, protocols, case reviews, and interviews with four specialists to provide a dynamic and interactive approach that enhances learning.
When you complete this course you will join with others who are leading the revolution in integrative medicine and nutrition for PTSD and Complex Trauma.
