The individuals on this list have completed the initial training towards the Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) therapist certificate. A total of 164 participants completed the initial training sponsored by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services in the summer of 2013. The certificate includes an additional year long phone consultation, completion of three clinical cases utilizing TF-CBT and successful completion of an exam. For more information about the certificate and to find therapists who are TF-CBT certified, visit https://rtfweb.wpahs.org/tfcbt/. Please note that there is not a universal trauma certification for providers as of yet. The Greater Richmond Trauma Informed Community Network is researching trauma certifications across the U.S. and plan to bring more training for mental health professionals to the Greater Richmond area.
More on the Greater Richmond Trauma Informed Community Network:
The Trauma Informed Community Network (TICN) initiated in the fall of 2012 with seven professionals representing three different agencies who were all interested in enhancing the knowledge base for local professionals to learn more about trauma informed child welfare practices. This group extended invitations to several others and the TICN grew rapidly.
The TICN was authorized by Dr. Lisa Conradi of the Chadwick Center for Children and Families at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego to use their Trauma System Readiness Survey and supporting documents to aid in an organizational assessment for trauma informed care. In February 2013, the TICN initiated Trauma Informed Child Welfare (TICW) project proposals with two Departments of Social Services of major counties in the Greater Richmond area.
