TACT2 & TBM
TRAININGS OF TRAINERS
Prepare for a Challenge!
To be sure that your front line staff get the very best training possible, we put Trainer Candidates through a rigorous learning experience. All Trainings of Trainers (ToTs) are conducted by author Dr. Steve Parese or one of his highly qualified Master Trainers, so you'll be learning from a highly experienced and knowledgable expert.
Get ready for a Challenge. You'll work hard to earn your TACT2 Trainer Certification at our 4-day Training of Trainers! You'll spend two days learning and teaching the verbal curriculum, then two more days mastering our physical holds, escorts, and restraints (optional). You'll be actively engaged every day, and probably exhausted every evening! But by the time you leave, you will be fully prepared to certify line staff in TACT2 or TBM. You'll have a solid grasp of the program's trauma-informed verbal content and you'll know how to do safe physical techniques. You'll have honed your instructional skills using our well-developed training curriculum and teaching approach, and you'll know how to assess others' verbal and physical competencies.
Trainer Prerequisites. Trainer candidates need not be accomplished public speakers or athletes but should be comfortable in front of peers, have a strong understanding of basic psychology and active listening, and be in reasonably good physical condition. Prior training in TACT2 or TBM is very helpful, but not required. We strongly recommend a training team of two or more, especially when teaching physical skills, and choosing candidates with at least 2 years in the field.
