"I’m able to share knowledge I’m passionate about beyond my own school and program.  One of my goals with trauma and resilience work is to get the message to as many people as possible.  Becoming a certified trainer has allowed me to do so while supplementing my income at the same time!"


Certified Trauma & Resilience Practitioners can continue their path of certification by becoming a Starr Certified Trauma & Resilience Trainer (CTRT). This certification is designed for professionals who are invested in promoting Starr’s programs, interventions, and resilience-focused approach to healing trauma. As a CTRT, trainers can train each of Starr’s five core courses within or outside of their organization – sharing the same powerful tools and mindset they have mastered with new professionals and the children, families, and communities they serve. Now, we're offering CTRT Trainings virtually. This virtual training certifies individuals to train others in Starr’s five core courses:

  • Children of Trauma and Resilience
  • Structured Sensory Interventions II
  • Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools
  • Resetting for Resilience
  • Healing Trauma and Restoring Resilience in Schools

CTRT Training Pre-Requisites:

    • Upon CTRT application approval, a link will be provided to you from Starr's Customer Care Team

Virtual Training Format:

  • Participation is capped at 12 individuals (and a minimum of 8 participants is required to proceed with any given date), so space is limited!
