Trauma Training at Richmont

The Richmont Institute of Traumatology (RIT) offers training and resources to professionals seeking specialized training in trauma, clinicians and first responders experiencing compassion fatigue, and help for individuals who have been victims of traumatization. The RIT offers a Graduate Certificate in Trauma through Richmont Graduate University and also offers training and certification through the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology. Richmont Trauma Response Teams are trained and available to meet acute trauma disasters locally, nationally, and globally.

Graduate Certificate in Trauma Counseling

Richmont Graduate University offers a Trauma specialization as part of its School of Counseling programs. The trauma counseling track is designed to provide specialized training for students who wish to work with clients who have experienced a history of trauma and/or abuse. This track emphasizes the understanding and treatment of “complex trauma”–trauma that typically began in the early, developmentally formative years and involved maltreatment by a major attachment figure/caregiver. However, these courses will also address the treatment needs of those who have suffered acute traumatic experiences. Richmont is partnering with national experts in the field of trauma treatment to provide training that combines understanding of biological impact of trauma, research-based treatment models, and faith integration.

Failure to acknowledge the pervasiveness of trauma on the development of children and in the lives of adults is a significant threat to relationships, families, churches, and communities…Yes, it hurts, and it’s messy, but it’s what God called us to do.

Dr. Vanessa Snyder, Director Richmont Institute of Traumatology

As most people have experienced trauma on some level, I wanted to learn how to be sensitive and support people in tough places. Not only that, but to walk alongside them as they write the rest of their story-acknowledging but not confined by the past.

Ben Horner, Richmont Graduate
