What does it mean to become a Biology of Trauma® Professional?

Dr. Aimie Apigian

A Biology of Trauma® Professional is trained to address all 3 essential pillars of somatic, parts and biology work to strategically and efficiently address stored trauma in the body and as a result, accelerate the trauma healing journey for their patients/clients. Professionals are trained in identifying which nervous system state a client is in in order to take the most effective approach to bringing the client to a regulated state, and to their best health and best selves. Professionals receive training in holistically applying the latest in neuroscience, epigenetics, attachment theory and more. Because Biology of Trauma® Professionals understand that healing begins with themselves, they walk through all of the exercises and trainings for themselves first in order to be their most well-resourced selves for clients and to better guide clients through their own holistic, healing work.

Who is the Biology of Trauma® Certificate Course for?

The Biology of Trauma® Professional Training program is for any provider or practitioner who wants to gain more tools and skills in effectively addressing trauma patterns in their work with others. No specific license or profession is required. If you want more knowledge and tools to address any underlying Biology of Trauma® that keeps those you work with stuck in life and health, this is for you! Some of our trained Professionals include:

  • health providers
  • mental health workers
  • health coaches
  • trauma recovery coaches
  • physicians
  • chiropractors
  • acupuncturists
  • occupational or physical therapists
  • personal development and life coaches

Understand the difference between Stress and Trauma physiology in the body.

Learn to recognize signs of stress vs trauma physiology in the body so you can apply the right tools! You’ll gain tools in essential functional medicine, neuro-optimization, somatic exercises, parts work and more to accelerate your clients’ movement out of chronic stress or trauma and on with their lives.

The 3 Guiding Principles of Treating a Biology of Trauma®

1. Treating trauma needs to be PRACTICAL, implementable, and not overwhelming.

2. The second principle is that it has to be PERSONALIZED. Cookie-cutter medicine does not work for the Biology of Trauma®. Clients need a personalized and bio-individualized evaluation and plan.

3. The third principle is that treatments have to be emPOWERING. We have to teach people how to track and shift their own nervous system in the ways that work best for them.

The Biology of Trauma® Professional Training Modules

The Foundational Module:
The 21 Day Journey + Intro Journey to All Parts of Me

Your path to becoming a Biology of Trauma® Professional begins with a guided, experiential 21 Day Journey into your own nervous system. Discover how to recognize the difference between stress and trauma in your own body and what your body needs in each state to return to feeling safe and supported.

And continue with essential parts work in the Intro Journey to All Parts of Me course, you will learn how to identify and communicate gently with your unique parts. Come to understand your triggers and why you do what you do, as well as how to get to the heart of what you really want, so you can give that to yourself.

Experiencing these somatic and parts processes for yourself will help you better walk clients through these essential steps to support and rewire their own nervous systems and to live connected to their authentic core.

The 6 Modules to Become a Biology Of Trauma® Professional

While it is recommended to take Modules in the order listed below, professional training can be done in any order.

The Biology of Freeze and Overwhelm

A 6-week journey into the biology of the freeze response bringing in the healing factors of safety, time, and energy on a cellular level by addressing mitochondrial health, brain inflammation and autoimmunity.

The Biology of Grief and Heart Shocks

The next stage of the healing journey after the freeze response, a 6-week journey into the biology of grief that can keep us stuck in a trauma response by bringing in the healing factors of titration and gut health.

The Biology of Attachment and Neurodevelopment

A 6-week journey into early attachment and neurodevelopment, the biology that predisposes one to attachment trauma and tools to rewire and program ourselves for safety and security on a cellular level.

The Biology of Stress & Anxiety

Coming out of a freeze response, a 6-week journey into strengthening a healthy stress response and maintaining our cellular resources to allow us to stand and take action in the problems in our life.

The Biology of Letting Go

A 6-week journey into The Biology of Letting Go, the last stage of the trauma healing journey that will keep us stuck in holding on to toxins, weight, inflammation and resentments.

The Biology of Healing

A 6-week journey into the integrated approach to implementing the right tools at the right time to move clients through their unique biology of trauma to the vibrant health, aliveness and connected relationships that await them on the other side.

All modules in the Biology of Trauma® Professional Training Program work together to:

✔ Help you identify & address the biological factors at play in your clients’          experience of stored trauma.
✔ Transform you into a next-level, holistic provider in addressing the                   underlying trauma affecting the physical, emotional and mental health of      your clients.

What Past Students Have Experienced

Frequently Asked Questions

The Biology of Trauma® framework bridges the two worlds of functional medicine and trauma therapy by providing the missing piece to most modalities and therapies, which is, addressing stored trauma in the body. Without addressing the biology piece, most trauma work remains insufficient. 

My Professional Training will teach you how to identify the biological factors holding back your client’s healing. It also incorporates advanced somatic and parts work to address other emotional, psychological and physiological aspects of stored trauma. 

Incorporating the holistic framework of the Biology of Trauma® model will enhance and accelerate the effectiveness of your current modalities and trainings for your clients who are being held back by stored trauma.

Foundational Module: The 21 Day Journey + Intro To All Parts of Me

The 21 Day Journey is a 21 consecutive-day guided journey into your nervous system. Through daily somatic exercises and live group practice sessions, you become attuned to the needs of your particular system and gain the tools to create the felt sense of safety and support your system needs in order to release trauma. You will be equipped to guide your own clients through these exercises or adaptations thereof upon completing your own 21 Day Journey

Intro to All Parts of Me is a 3-week guided exploration of your many different parts and why they do what they do. You will learn how to tap into what each part desires and needs, as well as how to create safety and support for each part. Through these daily exercises and twice weekly live sessions, your parts will begin to trust you and to relax and release – allowing your most mature and authentic self to begin running the show.

6 Certificate Modules:

Each module is a 6-week experiential journey which includes deeper somatic and parts work than the Foundational Module and also addresses the finer details of the biological factors that have been keeping trauma stuck in your and your clients’ bodies. In each week of each Module, you will receive a recorded lecture, a written chapter, a quiz and a homework assignment. Each week, Dr. Aimie also goes LIVE on Zoom for a Q&A session with students. At the end of each Module is a final written exam, final oral exam, and final implementation meeting to discuss how to incorporate this experience and tools into your practice. Each Module is packed with additional resources and tools such as somatic drop-in sessions, study groups, guest speakers, bonuses and more.

Though each person’s time commitment varies, I recommend setting aside 1 hour a day for both The 21 Day Journey and the Intro to All Parts of Me courses. I recommend you plan to devote 4-6 hours a week to working through the content of each Certificate Module.

Professionals of all kinds are invited to complete this training. As long as you are in a helping profession, you are working with trauma and stress in the nervous system and biology, and your practice will be greatly enhanced by the tools and knowledge you will gain from the Biology of Trauma® Professional Program.

The Foundational Module of the 21 Day Journey and Intro to All Parts of Me must be completed before beginning any of the 6 Biology of Trauma® Modules. While it is encouraged to take the 6 Modules in the order in which they are listed on this page, they can be taken in any order without compromising the effectiveness of the overall training.

This is not a course that gives you a license as a provider nor is it a health or trauma recovery coach credentialing program.  At the completion of each Module, you will receive a Certificate of Completion indicating that you have achieved competency on that specific topic of the Biology of Trauma®.

At the completion of all 6 modules of the Certificate Training, you will receive a certification as a Biology of Trauma® Professional from Trauma Healing Accelerated. This is a certification that you will be adding to your professional work capacities.     

You are still held to the restrictions, responsibilities and privileges of any primary license and board.

Once someone completes the 1-year Professional Certificate Training, they then have the option to pursue greater mastery and deeper application of the Biology of Trauma® model through the Advanced Professional Training. This would be a second full year of training in which special emphasis is placed on conducting more thorough assessments with clients, interpreting that data and lab work, and designing a client-specific treatment plan, including appropriate supplementation.

The Biology of Trauma® Professional Program is a one-year program with one foundational module and six certificate modules.

Foundational Module: The 21 Day Journey

6 Certificate Modules:

  • The Biology of Freeze & Overwhelm
  • The Biology of Grief & Heart Shocks
