Managing Secondary Traumatic Stress Through a Skills Based Model:

Components for Enhancing Clinician Experience and Reducing Trauma (CE-CERT)

This half-day training will provide a thorough overview on the Components for Enhancing Clinician Experience and Reducing Trauma (CE-CERT) model. Developed by Dr. Brian Miller, CE-CERT is a skills-based approach to improving provider well-being and effectiveness in working with traumatized clients. Drawing from what is known about trauma impacts and treatment, CE-CERT posits that secondary traumatic stress is not developed in response to mere exposure to others’ trauma stories, but occurs when feeling overwhelmed or helpless. In contrast to self-care strategies that require the individual to engage in a restorative practice after-work, the CE-CERT model proposes micro-interventions done throughout the day.

The five core components of CE-CERT: Experiential Engagement, Reducing Rumination, Conscious Narrative, Reducing Emotional Labor, and Parasympathetic Recovery, and the acquirable skills within each will be taught through both didactic and experiential activities.


This training will be held via Zoom.

      • The session will have 8:30am-10am and 10:30am-12pm segments.
      • Participants must attend each segment.
      • Each participant is required to join on an individual computer equipped with a microphone and webcam.
        • Our team is working hard to ensure that sessions are interactive between trainers and participants, so we will be asking participants to join discussions and interactive activities.


If your are also registering for the Introduction to TF-CBT training the cost for the CE-CERT Overview training is included in that fee (one payment for both trainings).

If you are ONLY registering for the CE-CERT Overview Training the cost for participation is $35. Training is offered at no cost for therapists working for agencies contracting with the DMH (Department of Mental Health) on child trauma services. 


This training is approved for 3 CEUs with the Oklahoma State Board of Behavioral Health & the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Social Workers.
