Becoming a Supervisor or Trainer
With Trauma Institute & Child Trauma Institute
TI & CTI Supervisors
Trauma Institute/Child Trauma Institute (TI & CTI) Supervisors assist in supervising TI & CTI workshop small-group practice sessions. If you are an excellent clinician with a trauma treatment orientation, you may qualify to become a TI & CTI Supervisor. Those who wish to be considered as a TI & CTI Supervisor, for one or more of the TI & CTI training programs, must complete the following, in any order:
- Attend the training program of interest, e.g., Progressive Counting (PC); EMDR.
(these programs are for anyone eligible to attend; a planned future with TI & CTI is not a requirement).
- Be Certified in PC or EMDR (depending on your area of interest) and have Consultant status.
Completion of these steps does not guarantee acceptance. Individuals may request feedback on their status at any point. Note that most TI & CTI Supervisors will have become Consultants via a TI & CTI Consultant-In-Training group.
TI & CTI Supervisor training involves studying the course(s) more intensively, shadowing a supervisor, and providing supervision under observation. Following observation, there is feedback, more work under observation, etc. When the individual's supervision has been approved, s/he is then a TI & CTI Supervisor.
TI & CTI Supervisors are independent professionals who assist in TI & CTI trainings on a contractual basis. Supervisors may also receive consultation referrals from TI & CTI.
TI & CTI Trainers
TI & CTI Trainers are experienced Supervisors who undergo additional training and supervision. This typically involves the trainer creating their own speaker notes, reviewing these with Dr. Greenwald or his designee, and then providing videotapes of "practice" (typically with small groups) trainings and receiving feedback until such videos are no longer required. Trainers are independent professionals who may provide TI & CTI trainings on a contractual basis, or who may offer the training programs independently through an affiliate relationship.
The 6-day Trainer's Retreat is required for all trainers.
