Early Intervention Field Traumatologist (1001)

This course addresses the fundamentals of on-site field trauma response from the perspective of both emergency responders and mental health professionals. Participants learn the fundamentals of traumatology, including the basics of thanatology, victimology, traumatic stress, stress research, crisis intervention, Psychological First-Aid, Pros and Cons of CISD/M, sociology of disasters and our NEW Educate, Assess & Refer Early Intervention Model (E.A.R. Model).

The aim of this program is to offer the required skills to enable an individual to react quickly to natural or human-caused disaster, to understand how to lessen the negative aftermath of a crisis, and refer additional resources as necessary to alleviate the constituent stress/trauma from the crisis.

This course is a component of the COMMUNITY & WORKPLACE TRAUMATOLOGIST & the CLINICAL TRAUMATOLOGIST Certificates of Completion. We will accept a blend of face-to-face or on-line courses.

Successful participants of the Early Intervention Field Trauma training curriculum are able to use the TITC-EIFT designation (which stands for Traumatology Institute Training Curriculum, Early Intervention Field Traumatologist).

How the course works

It is recommend that the courses in each program’s curriculum be taken sequentially in consecutive order. The assignments and evaluations in EIFT Certificate rely on an integration of knowledge from all previous EIFT courses.

This method of learning gives students the opportunity to amalgamate their knowledge into a practical system for addressing post-trauma intervention.

The courses provide a chance for utilizing online exercises, assignments and unit quizzes to learn. These evaluations are designed for your education only and are not submitted for grading, they are analyzed by Traumatology Institute staff to be considered on a pass/fail basis. These assignments, in addition to the successful completion of core curriculum, will satiate the requirements of this program.

Each course requires the successful completion of a Final Quiz. To pass these quizzes, your grade must be higher than 80%. After course completion, a Certificate of Completion in your selected stream will be available to you on the E-learning site.

This certification is administered by the Traumatology Institute. You can also access additional international certification through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS) and Green Cross Academy of Traumatology in the U.S. Both organizations accept our training and are able to provide advanced certification.
