Certification can be obtained in a number of areas. The most common and overall effective
(which is a prerequisite for more advanced training) is the TIR-W.
If one wants to be a "Certified Facilitator",
there are two fundamental options:
Certified Traumatic Incident Reduction Facilitator and/or
Certified Life Stress Reduction Facilitator (both can be achieved through this training)
The overall basic fees to become certified as both a TIR Facilitator and an LSR Facilitator including a 3 month Internship (practice time, supervision and consultation) would be approximately $2000.00 plus applicable taxes. I highly recommend the TIR-Expanded Application workshop as well for an extra $750.00. ($2750 and 9 months duration for ALL)
