About this event

The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center offers this free CE-CERT (Components for Enhancing Career Experience and Reducing Trauma) training to any mental health providers and others in the helping professions who work with trauma survivors.

Clinicians, support workers, and first responders use the skills and practices of CE-CERT to help maintain their emotional well-being. The training goes beyond simple self-care approaches to reduce trauma and burnout. Many who work in trauma-exposed environments rely on strategies from the training to sustain their careers as they deal with intense situations.

This six-hour training with Dr. Brian Miller will be available on two different dates. The content will be the same for each and there will be an option to attend virtually for non-locals. Lunch will be provided.
