At the core of our effort to enhance the effectiveness of our current mental health system and approaches to times of struggle is training. We are committed to supporting mental health professionals through the delivery of continuing education courses focused on the principles of Posttraumatic Growth. This training effort is led by Dr. Richard Tedeschi, the founder of PTG, and Dr. Bret Moore, a twice-deployed Army psychologist. Over their illustrious careers, Drs. Tedeschi and Moore have trained thousands of mental health professionals, and we plan to grow those numbers through online and offline mediums.

The focus of these training efforts relate to those on the front-line with respect to trauma and treatment: mental health professionals, primary care physicians and relevant specialists, medical students, interns, and residents.

In 2021, we plan to launch a full suite of in-person and virtual training programs, and enable anyone interested in the subject of Posttraumatic Growth to obtain certification. In the interim, you can access a home study seminar created by Dr. Tedeschi and Dr. Moore at this link.

The training will focus on the principles of PTG, how to integrate PTG into practices, workplaces, environments, and how to support others in achieving PTG.
