Training Programs

STRONG STAR Training Initiative (SSTI) translates advanced research by the STRONG STAR Consortium into practical application in mental health settings. Since their inception in 2017, their goal has been to make lives better by increasing access to quality mental health care through excellence in training, research, and community engagement.

The SSTI training approach fosters a collaborative “Learning Community” model, ensuring clinicians receive the comprehensive education, support, and resources necessary when delivering evidence-based treatments for PTSD and Suicide Prevention.

Learning Community Training Includes:

The mature adult female therapist listens compassionately to the unrecognizable female client share her problems.

  • A Foundational Workshop focused on essential treatment skills and delivery of the protocol.
  • Weekly Consultation Calls with a treatment expert as you work with real-world clients and start using your new skills following a workshop.
  • Access to the SSTI Provider Portal, featuring advanced training webinars, therapy demonstrations, and implementation resources to enhance your learning journey.

In addition to core training for mental health clinicians, SSTI also provides supplemental resources and training opportunities. These include various events such as our complimentary Care Navigator webinars, CPT training tailored for students, and Advanced Skills workshops.

Whether you’re a seasoned mental health clinician looking to expand your expertise or a newcomer to the field seeking foundational knowledge, SSTI offers the resources to empower you in delivering the high-quality treatments your clients deserve.
