Consider these facts: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and Developmental Trauma (DT) are highly correlated with serious emotional problems, degenerated health risk behaviors, social problems, adult disease and disability, mortality, high health care and other costs, and worker performance problems.
They’re also significantly correlated with liver disease, chronic pulmonary obstructive disease, heart disease, autoimmune disease, lung cancer, depression, attempted suicide, hallucinations, the use of antipsychotic medications, the abuse of substances, multiple sex partners and an increased likelihood of becoming a victim of sexual assault or domestic violence.
There’s simply no getting around it, if you interface with the public, as a teacher, therapist, police officer, pastor, probation officer, whatever, it’s time to change the dialogue.

About these Online Courses:
These courses were created from a live, three-day conference in Colorado Springs, conducted by the Colorado Professional Development Center. CPDC has certified over two hundred people as Trauma-Informed Practitioners, from therapists to soldiers, and everything in between.
What sets this approach apart from others is that the focus is on more than merely identifying trauma and treating symptoms. You’ll learn that it’s possible to actually HEAL the trauma through engagement, empathy and compassion.
The TIC Training Center in Asheville, NC saw the need to make this exceptional training more accessible, less disruptive and more affordable for the good people of the world. In collaboration with CPDC, they transformed those three days into two rich and engaging online courses that you can take at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home – or anywhere else you might have an internet connection. One of the courses is a
Practitioner Training For Professionals and the second course is designed as an Introductory Course in TIC for non-professionals.
