Whether individuals are victims of trauma or supporting others who are, nothing occurs in a vacuum. There is a story and a reason for “why” behind the complex human reactions to traumatic situations, including the fact that ten people can be exposed to the same traumatic stimuli and yet have ten completely different responses. With that, this course will present our own evolutionary process for understanding trauma, and introduce you to the early research, concepts, and variables that led to the development of the Traumatic Event Systems (TES™) model of crisis and trauma response. Unlike other crisis Response models, the TES™ Model considers the unique characteristics of the individuals, families, schools, workplaces, or communities we are supporting. We do not assume that every human being or human system functions the same, therefore trauma response should be “measured” to the actual circumstance of those we are supporting. Born out of our experience working in the aftermath of some of North America’s highest-profile traumas, this course is a timely edition for understanding the human response to trauma in individuals, families, and beyond.

Who should take the courses?
The Foundation Courses are customized for the person who has an interest in the fields of threat
assessment, trauma response, or family dynamics: including para-professionals, professionals, and
those with a general interest in advancing their learning. It is designed to provide learning for those
who want general exposure to the CTIP™ models as well as those who are planning—as part of
their professional development—to complete any of the two-day, in-person training courses. It is also
meant to provide those who have already completed two-day trainings an opportunity to refresh
their learning and dive more deeply into areas that informed our current training program.
