FST | Family Systems Trauma Certification

Final Step in the FST Advanced Training Program 
Growing from Education to Application

Certification Pre-Requisites

Participants must have a Master's Degree or higher and completed FST Advanced Training.  The FST Certification process requires participants to share FST work with actual family cases (without identifiable information).

Family Trauma Specialist

Mastery of FST through application is the next step after FST Advanced Training.  FST Certification gives you unique expertise  in treating the entire traumatized family by going beyond learned techniques into practice.

Participant Commitment

To gain confidence through practiced application, participants submit homework reviewed by an FST Consultant prior to each consultation session. Participants attend six 2-hour group consultation sessions. 

What is FST Certification?
