NC Academy for Stress, Trauma, and Resilience (NCA-STAR)
Helping the helpers better understand trauma and its impact on our campus, community, & world
What are stress, trauma, and resilience?
At some point in our lives, all of us will experience some sort of life stress and even trauma. At NCA-STAR, we feel the need to broaden the understanding of trauma to meet the experiences of our community.
The Trauma-Informed Professional Practice Certificate Training Program (TIPP) for Mental Health Professionals is a wellness-focused tool for people in helping professions that need a deeper understanding of the impacts, reactions, and effects of trauma. Through 16 self-paced video-based modules, professionals can build skills in diagnosis, assessment, evidence-based practices, reflective activities and more.
