About the Event
A 90-minute Certification Dialogue will be scheduled at a mutually opportune time for you and two of Lodestar’s coach trainers. The goal is to provide an opportunity for you to solidify your knowledge and understanding of trauma and trauma mitigation coaching, and to demonstrate your skills in applying what you’ve learned.
To help you prepare for the dialogue, we’ll provide a pdf of all of the content slides used throughout the training. We are also available to you for any questions.
The 90-minute dialogue will include:
- 20 minutes for you to present an application of TIPCTM methodologies for an individual client or a team. This should include: 1) Context and manifestations of trauma in the client 2) How you applied/would apply now at least three of the different aspects of the BRAVE coaching model 3) Challenges you faced 4) Impact and outcomes
- 60 minutes for you to share your thinking and responses to your choice of 6 of the questions provided to you (also listed below). This time may include back and forth as we listen and ask curious questions to gain a deeper understanding of how you think and what you’ve learned.

How do you recognize when a client would benefit from a referral to a therapist? What have you done to ensure you are ready to refer? What might you say to a client, and how would you follow up?
