Certified Trauma & Resilience Coach (CTRC) Course

The Certified Trauma & Resilience Coach Course is a certification course for Starr Certified Trauma Practitioners to gain specific skills and tools that support the implementation of trauma-informed, resilience-focused practices and strategies within schools. Starr Certified Trauma & Resilience Coaches (CTRC) have a fundamental understanding of the impact trauma and stress have on learning; the social, emotional, and physical development of students; and the role resilience plays in creating strength-based learning environments. With this certification, CTRC’s will learn skills for having impactful coaching relationships and conversations, facilitating courageous feedback conversations, conducting resilient, supportive observations, and supporting mastery of trauma-informed best practices. Tools for modeling and co-teaching specific skills and supporting mindset shifts will also be explored and shared. Credentialed professionals understand how to be a champion for trauma-informed, resilience-focused practices within their school and/or district, coach peers and student’s parents/guardians, and create a culture of safety and trust for all to thrive. This certification is for anyone who wants to be instrumental in the process of ensuring trauma-informed mindsets and practices take root in their school or organization, with the ultimate goal of building resilience in children, families, and their communities.
