WCPs Disaster Trauma Training Certification Program (DTTCP) Guidelines

Dr Kelly Ray

 NOTE: This prestentation is only available as mp3 audio.

In the aftermath of a disaster, whether natural or man-made, immediate response is crucial but often hampered by a breakdown in services. The DTTCP was born out of the need to bridge communities with appropriate support. Just as trained professionals are needed to provide physical and psychological first aid, trained gatekeepers are needed to facilitate and transition to those services. 

This certification has three levels: professionals already licensed in their fields; native healers; and student associates. A WCP committee verifies credentials for all three groups of applicants. It is believed that applicants who have achieved education/training in the top of his/her field have met the qualifications and have a basic understanding of the type of disaster that would most likely affect a particular region of the world; understand proactive disaster/trauma preparation to address physical, medical, safety and psychosocial/spiritual needs of the affected population; and understand essential networking/gatekeeping skills.
