Currently Lucia is teaching a Postgraduate Diploma in Trauma & PTSD that she created to give participants a systematic and thorough approach for assisting trauma clients. This course was created as Lucia found that other courses were theory-heavy, but typically left participants without a clearly defined and practical approach to processing client’s trauma. Lucia also teaches several trauma workshops that are accredited by the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) and recognised by the United Kingdom Psychological Trauma Society (UKPTS). These courses lead to a Certificate in Traumatology recognised throughout Europe.

CPD certificates are issued with each course and can be used toward the IFEAL EFHD Trauma and PTSD training.
