Certificate Program in Integrative Trauma Studies:
a 9-Month Program

The Integrative Trauma Studies Certificate Program provides a comprehensive overview of essential topics in the understanding and treatment of trauma. Weekly, clinically oriented seminars integrate psychoanalytic/psychodynamic concepts with contemporary, essential themes and considerations in the treatment of trauma. All instructors combine theoretical and clinical material with case and/or video illustrations.

The program is designed to provide experienced psychoanalytic/psychodynamic clinicians with the enhanced understanding and skills to treat patients with a broad range of traumatic experiences, including adult-onset and childhood trauma.

Seminars are led by an outstanding faculty, all recognized experts in trauma treatment, who are especially effective at engaging candidates through theoretical presentation, clinical illustration, and interventions that are particular to trauma treatment. Topics are scheduled in a particular sequence to optimize candidates' grasp and integration of the material.

Graduates of the program receive a Certificate in Integrative Trauma Studies at NIP's graduation ceremony in June.
