Trauma Recovery Focused Approach

Are you overwhelmed by clients not getting better? Burned out? Frustrated?

When it comes to helping professions, trauma is a major barrier to the people we serve. But you already knew that, which is why you’ve invested your time and energy in learning more about trauma in a bid to provide more effective support for the people you’re serving.  

The Trauma Recovery Focused Approach (TRFA) Program will give you the tools you have been looking for. You will be able to:

  • Clearly explain the science behind trauma with your clients

  • Explore the signs and symptoms of trauma your client is exhibiting in partnership with them

  • Identify ways to safely and effectively help your clients begin navigating their trauma responses

  • Provide tools and resources to your clients so that they can start implementing what they learned in their day-to-day lives

What's Included

  • 18 hours of guided learning

  • 12 live training sessions led by a trauma expert (60 minutes, weekly)

  • 12 Q&A and experiential learning and discussion sessions with your peers and instructor (30 minutes, weekly)

  • Exclusive access to an online community with your program group

  • A small group for practicing, deepening your experiential learning opportunities


Discounts are available for payment in full, and alternate payment options are available for those who prefer to break up the tuition into smaller amounts. 

Trauma Recovery Focused Approach™

Developed by your instructor, Ace Whitman, TRFA™ operates from the belief that trauma impacts every person, and this is especially true of those who are seeking assistance from mental health and social service providers.  However, trauma recovery support and guidance is far from accessible to the people most vulnerable in our communities.   Even worse, many of the organizations and services that are available operate off old, ineffective, and harmful practices and policies, leading to only further harm for those reaching out for help. 

The TRFA™ assumes that every service provider must understand how trauma is experienced in the brain and body.  Every provider needs to know how long term exposure to trauma leads to the over-use of trauma responses, leading to difficulties in almost every aspect of life. A person who can never feel fully safe will experience the physiological, biological, neurological, and psychological implications of being in a survival state all of the time. 
Providers who utilize the TRFA™ learn how to identify signs of trauma exposure, how to best help someone who has been exposed to traumatic experiences feel safe, and how to guide them through the trauma recovery process. 

Trauma recovery research is becoming increasingly more common, yet mental health and social service practices continue to operate as if this new information is not available.  The TRFA™ offers mental health and social service providers with the knowledge, tools, and skills to translate the latest trauma recovery research into real, sustainable healing.
