Online Certificate Course & Graduate Credit
The National Wounded Student™ Certificate Program is designed to give you the latest research, tools, assessments, references, and practical ideas to understand the effects of trauma on learning and behavior as well as work with wounded youth in your organizational setting (schools, teams, youth organizations/clubs, churches, foster care system, etc). You will be guided through an original model for understanding, reaching, and positioning wounded children to experience transformation in their lives developed by Dr. Joe Hendershott. This course utilizes Joe's book 7 Ways to Transform The Lives of Wounded Students (Reaching the Wounded Student is recommended, but optional). The cost of registration for the certificate program is $299.

"The flexibility with this course is a lifesaver!" Patty B.
"In the opening chapter of '7 Ways to Transform the Lives of Wounded Students,' you ask three key questions about leadership. I wish I had these three questions posed to me years ago when I began my journey in my career. Questions about ethical leadership prompted me to examine my own motivation and energy to address possibly the number one public health crisis that our nation faces--toxic stress for our children and its impact on their brain and ability to learn." Tim N.
"This isn't just a bunch of dry information. This course made me think about now and the future for myself and my students. I like having the books that I can go back to for guidance and inspiration. Dr. H knows his stuff." Ronald L.
