What is the United Front Certification for Professionals
It is very difficult for plural systems (DID, OSDD, other dissociative disorders, undiagnosed plurals, or people who happen to be plural with other mental health issues who want to seek therapy) to find fully vetted, trained, and plural-positive professionals.
We are providing a 13-week (or 13-lesson) training program to help licensed professionals understand the inner workings and paradigms of DID, OSDD and plural systems. At the end of the program, professionals who pass the course will be added to our list of vetted professionals, and given a graphic badge to display on their website indicating that they have passed the course and are considered a plural-informed and plural-safe professional.
- Complete each week's assignment before getting the next week's packet.
- Take up to 1 year to complete the course.
- Work on the materials at your own pace.
- Ask questions and follow up as needed with the instructor via email.
