There are five levels of TEAM-CBT certification.
Certification serves as a roadmap to help you advance your skills in TEAM therapy. Certification is intended to provide quality training to clinicians interested in providing TEAM therapy and to publicly acknowledge those who have received training. We would love to welcome you to the TEAM community and support your learning! Five progressive Certification levels provide opportunities for clinicians to deepen their level of skill mastery. Certification can be accomplished through participation in various types of training (e.g., online or local group training, individual training, workshops, self-study). Please download the Certification Requirements & Units Table to learn details.
Why get certified?
Possible benefits of Certification include: a Certificate of Achievement, membership in a supportive community, listserv participation (for additional learning, consultation, networking, and access to cutting edge developments by Dr. Burns and the TEAM Master Clinicians), referrals through a profile listing on the FGI website directory, and access to information regarding additional training opportunities. Note that Level 1 Certification requires a small annual fee for ongoing access to the listserv and website directory. Advancing to Level 2 or higher waives the annual fee.

Level 4 TEAM Therapist and Trainer
This highest degree of certification involves extensive training in the skills of providing TEAM Therapy as well as in the training and supervising skills needed to teach TEAM therapy.
