Attachment trauma focused training for professionals

50-hour, Online Certification Post-Graduate Training Course

Learn to improve the outcomes of youth coping with childhood trauma and neglect.

Early experiences within attachment systems form the threads that weave the fabric of every human being. A safe and secure attachment system builds resilience for a lifetime while attachment traumas and toxic stress can erode mental and physical health and well-being.

The Attachment and Trauma-Focused Training for Professionals (ATFT-Pro) is an online, 50-hour, certification course designed for any professional who works with children and youth that have experienced childhood trauma and neglect. The course includes 20 hours of live, online work plus 30 hours of preparatory reading of current curated literature and reviewing practical videos.

To enroll in the ATFT-Pro Certification Course, participants must have a Bachelor’s degree in psychology, social work, or any other related field
