ESTD

ESTD Mentors

ESTD is proposing a new initiative – experienced trauma and dissociation clinicians or researchers will be certified by ESTD, and referred to as ESTD ‘mentors’. People who can become ESTD mentors will be academics, researchers, clinical trainers, or supervisors who put significant efforts into fulfilling the ESTD mission by developing and disseminating knowledge about trauma and dissociation – locally and internationally.

They are healthcare professionals or academics with excellent reputations and impact in their community and abroad. Among ESTD mentors there are also Honorary mentors who are specialists nominated by the board for their special achievements and contribution to the ESTD mission. This document outlines a mentor’s tasks and privileges, along with the procedures for becoming a mentor.

ESTD expectations from mentors

An ESTD mentor is a known and experienced professional in his country in the field of trauma and dissociation, also recognized by ESTD, that provides training, supervision, produces webinars and educational material and may also participate in the ESTD certification program.

ESTD mentors’ privileges

How can someone become an ESTD mentor?

Two types of procedures can be applied to obtain the status of an ESTD mentor: Mentorship by nomination and Mentorship by application. Honorary mentorship is only granted by nomination. Mentors are assigned to one or more categories depending on their area of expertise: ST (scientific trainers – academic teachers, researchers), CL (clinical trainers – psychotherapists, supervisors), CAS (children and adolescent specialists).
