Training Program for Clinics

The ITTM Training Program for Clinics is a comprehensive program for complex trauma treatment that includes 100 hours of advanced clinical skills training, designed to provide clinicians with the theoretical basis necessary to use the ITTM model in the course of practice.

The Training Program can accommodate between 10 to 60 clinicians and is delivered over the course of 10 days at your clinic’s location. Currently, the ITTM is currently being delivered to national and international audiences in Canada, the United States, Europe, and in developing countries.

Testimonials from Clinics using ITTM

  • “With the implementation of the ITTM, clinicians are more self-assured, confident in dealing with these cases because they have a clear clinical direction in working trauma cases and consequently have experienced greater success.

    Michelle Bernier-Wilson Clinical Coordinator, Child and Family Centre Sudbury

ITTM Certification

The ITTM Certification is available for clinicians after one to two years of practice, depending on the degree to which the clinician has been able to implement the ITTM model.

The certification process includes two components: (A) live or video demonstrations of ITTM program in action, and (B) a review of ITTM knowledge and practice in one-on-one sessions.

A. Demonstration

Clinicians are required to demonstrate their work in each phase of the program:

  • Leading a Phase A group session
  • Demonstrating a Phase B session (including the development of a Past/Present/Future diagram with a client)
  • Demonstrating a Phase C Session (including the use of the Sand Tray Method to treat the traumatic event of a child or adult)

These training requirements may be fulfilled with live session demonstrations or through the submission of video recording of the required session. Comments or feedback will be provided to the clinician through one-on-one sessions with the ITTM Trainer.

B. Review of Knowledge and Practice

After their initial training, the clinician is required to meet with their trainer in person or via video call for a 1 to 2 hour session on a monthly basis. These sessions occur over the course of the next 1 to 2 years. The aim of these sessions will be to review their knowledge of the theory and practice of the ITTM, guide the clinicians progress, and help them through the learning curve.

If any areas requiring improvement are identified, a plan and a timeline for reaching these goals is developed and reviewed within the given timeframe. Once all goals for practice have been achieved, the official ITTM Certificate is issued to the clinician.
