Certified Trauma & Resilience Practitioner (CTRP) – Clinical Track Certification

Starr Certified Trauma & Resilience Practitioners (CTRP) have a fundamental understanding of the impact trauma has on the social, emotional, and physical development of youth, and the role resilience plays in creating positive, future health outcomes for the individuals they serve. With a specialization in clinical settings, each understands the importance their own curiosity of a child’s life experiences plays in diagnosing behavior and developing a trusting relationship that leads to the belief in each child’s inner greatness.

Why pursue CTRP Certification?

  • To continue your pursuit of learning new tools and skills to heal trauma
  • To gain access to a large network of CTRPs within your field, allowing you to share experiences, exchange best practices, and continue to expand your skillset
  • To achieve a new, professional credential to showcase on professional materials/platforms to differentiate yourself, complete with a certification badge to distinguish your commitment to building resilience in the children, families, and communities you serve
