The Canadian Foundation for Trauma Research & Education (CFTRE) is a registered Canadian charity created to further the understanding of the fields of neurobiology & psychophysiology, through education and research, as they pertain to the treatment of traumatic conditions.

In this training, practitioners are taught practical applications of the most recent psychophysiological research to treat Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and other symptoms of dysregulation in the brain and nervous system such as sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
This training builds on the basic psychophysiological skills learned in the Foundation Level and consists of four 3-day seminars. Completion of Advanced I – IV are required for certification and must be taken in order.
