PTSD affects the majority of individuals on various levels having experienced some form of trauma over the course of their lifetime. The designation of DSM-5 further highlights the legitimacy in trying to understand and mitigate the effects of PTSD and identified a need for treatment.

The Nueva Luz Foundation is committed to assisting those that have been affected by trauma and PTSD. We accomplish this through the PTSD Initiative.

The PTSD Initiative professional training series is an enterprise licensed to the Nueva Luz Foundation. The goal of the PTSD Initiative is to educate individuals on the effects of trauma and PSTD on children, veterans, and their families as well as our first responders. The PTSD Initiative offers continuing education training which is ideal for agencies that strive to work with this population and earn their required annual CEU’s.
