My main focus works be with women suffering from domestic abuse and other traumas. I've been through the same thing and I will be able to relate to women who need someone affordable to talk to and with through the trauma. I'm a survivor and I have my counselors and therapists who helped me get to the place I am today. I'm happy and not walking on egg shells anymore.

I’m a survivor of domestic violence myself and I am an ARMS (abuse recovery ministry and services) Leader. That would be a good place to start your training in that field and we are in need for some more leaders. If you are interested call the ARMS office at 509-484-0600 The next step would be to get your masters in counseling. I myself chose Colorado Christian University but there are many more qualified universities and colleges. I hope this helps

Get a master in social work, then get license as a therapist/ counselor. Do not take out a bunch of loans. Look for state university where you can pay per class, or perhaps an employer that offers pay tuition as a benefit to employees. I think Amazon is now offering tuition assistance?

Depending on what you want to learn more about or where you want to take your career, there are more options than ever to further your education online or in the classroom to earn a certification.

“I've had clients who haven't had anything but a high school education, and they gained experience over the years from hands-on experience and certifications,” said Williams. “It still shows that they're current, they're learning and they're open and willing to learn more.”

As far as what kind of certifications to pursue to boost your career, Tracy Levine, CEO of Advantage Talent, states that for recent high school graduates, certifications are the most direct route to a good career.

“Employers have more input into the creation of certifications, so they have direct business value,” said Levine. “Unlike college degrees, certifications provide transparency into what is taught and what skills a student will bring to their employer.”

Regardless of your education level, certifications prove to an employer that you are a lifelong learner, desire to get better at your trade and take your career seriously.

One of the more pleasurable aspects of my current day job is that I'm responsible for emailing #certificates to students who completed any of the courses on how to make documents accessible to people with various disabilities (such as blindness and dyslexia). The certificates are created in #Adobe #InDesign, exported as a #PDF, then sent. The students love receiving them and I've gotten thank you emails. (And, yes, the name on this one is bogus.)
