Effective date: January 2023 

The TILF course does not equip students with the skills to work directly with trauma, nor does it certify someone as a trauma therapist. The TILF certification is intended to assist coaches, healers, and practitioners to view things through a trauma-informed lens and is an information-based course only and does not offer the skills for treatment. 

The information within this training is based on years of lived experience, client sessions, alternative therapy training, and independent research and is considered to be outside of mainstream medical treatment. 

You agree that you understand that the trainers are not medical professionals and that TILF is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, or cure of any condition or disease.

Taking this training and receiving certification does not make you a medical professional, and the certification does not grant you any authority under any regulating body.

You agree that you will not advertise, give advice, or work with clients who are outside of the scope of practice unless you are also a medical professional. You also agree you will not diagnose, or attempt to assist someone in trauma resolution without further education.

If you are joining this training for your own healing then you agree and understand that your journey is your responsibility, and you understand that we simply offer perspectives that we have found to be effective for our clients and for ourselves personally, we do not prescribe anything that guarantees any kind of outcome for every person. 

Any decision made from the interpretation of the content is a student's responsibility. Based on the information in this training if one is considering making a life-altering decision, for example leaving one's partner or family, changing or coming off medication, trying psychedelic medicines, or any other decision where there may be consequences the trainers take no responsibility for these decisions and we encourage every student to seek alternative opinions and support when making them.

Any discussion on medication is not to be taken literally and any decision around your own personal medication needs to be made with your GP, psychiatrist, or prescribing professional. 

The information and techniques in this training are based on the evolving field of somatic therapy and neuroscience, as of 2022 these techniques and theories are up to date and inclusive of the findings of many of the major professionals within this field. 

If whilst going through the content you find any information has become outdated, please let us know and we will update the content. 

It is up to each student to research the laws within their own country or state as to which language they are able to use whilst advertising themselves as a trauma-informed practitioner. For example, in the USA it is prohibited for practitioners to use the terms “healing trauma” or to talk about “trauma” unless they are licensed professionals (eg. Psychologists or Doctors). In this case, you can speak to us about alternative ways to promote your work. 

If you are suffering from suicidal ideation, BPD (borderline personality disorder), DID (dissociative identity disorder), or other forms of mental illness TILF states that this training is not treating these kinds of diagnoses and that they should be treated by a medical professional, in these cases we still hope and have at times seen the information and techniques be helpful for those who are suffering with this diagnosis.  

Students and practitioners must become aware of and familiar with the governing bodies, codes of conduct, and laws for their own state, territory, or country while advertising and engaging with clients.

By agreeing below you are agreeing that you understand all of the above and that signing up for TILF is your own decision and you are agreeing that you are aware of the potential benefits vs risks and the scope of the course.
