The Addictions Academy Founder Dr. Cali Estes recently announced they have developed a Trauma Coach training program that teaches professionals how to connect with clients at the deeper core level and help them resolve their trauma of the past. Participants will be able to define trauma and understand the concepts and principles of the Person-Centered Trauma-Informed Approach to Care, along with the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) that are often mentioned in clinical practices.
“Students will learn how trauma can lead to addiction, how it affects people in the long and short term and how to help their clients recover from all the stages of trauma,” said Dr. Estes.
She continued, “Anyone working in the field of addiction and mental health or even life coaching encounters various levels of trauma in each individual client. This class will teach how to identify each type of trauma, what strategies to utilize, and when (if) graduates need to refer to a therapist. If someone is a trauma survivor and drawn to this path of certified trauma coaching, this class is ideal to strengthen their skillset and add to their knowledge base to help clients.”
