Who is eligible for our Program?
To be eligible for our program, you will need to have a master’s degree in social work, mental health counseling or another related mental health field. In addition, we prefer applicants to have experience working with traumatized individuals. If you are not fully licensed, you can accrue hours towards your license.
Readiness for Training
The applicant’s previous training and experience will be assessed as part of the admissions process. Because trauma work is demanding and involves many new concepts, basic therapeutic skills should already be in place. Applicants should have some familiarity with psychodynamic concepts such as transference and countertransference.
