About the Certificate

The Trauma: Clinical Bases of Treatment and Recovery Graduate Certificate is designed to meet the continuing education needs of licensed professional counselors, individuals with a master’s degree in a clinical field (such as counseling, social work, etc.), as well as doctoral-level clinical psychologists or counselors.

The past decade has produced a clear rise in trauma-related events—”terrifying experiences that rupture people’s sense of predictability and invulnerability”—confronting the general population on many levels, from individual to international. Arcadia’s specialization in trauma responds to the growing need for counselors to assist clients who have been impacted by traumatic experiences, such as natural disasters, sexual or physical abuse, war, or other devastating events.

Advanced counselor training in trauma includes both short-term interventions and long-term care. Specialty courses focus on evidence based treatments of trauma, strategies for treating grief and bereavement, as well as advocacy and social justice. 

Admission Requirements

In addition to the general admission procedures, a student also must hold a master’s or doctoral degree in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, or a closely related clinical discipline. Test scores are not required.
