16-Module, Self-Paced Course

STARR Certification Course Now Available 

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the STARR Certification Course – an online, self-paced, program – developed in partnership with Maryland University of Integrative Health. Gyms for our physical health have been available for so long, and the STARR Certification Course fills the void we’ve been missing for our mental health – a “Gym for the Brain.” Just as a personal trainer would teach you different exercises and why they are important for your body, the STARR Certification Course pairs you with more than 15 of the world’s leading experts in mental health to explain both the science behind the brain/body connection and different exercises available to improve your overall brain health and heal your Central Nervous Systems.
#SameHere has been working for many years to offer a course such as this. We started by collaborating with the foremost experts in the mental health space to create our Practitioner Alliance and the concept of STARR (Stress & Trauma, Active Release & Rewiring). Partnering with Maryland University of Integrative Health allowed us to scale STARR into digestible, digital lessons that can be used by anyone – from parents to CEOs, teachers to social workers, etc. – to learn about the brain/body connection.
We can’t wait for you to learn first-hand the science of stress and trauma and the exercises that will help improve your mental health and build resiliency from the world’s top experts, including: Dr. Vincent Feletti, Dr. Stephen Porges, Dr. Leslie Korn, Dr. Steven C. Hayes, Amy Weintraub, Dr. Prudence Farrow Bruns, Dr. David Berceli, Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, Dr. Richard Brown, Brad Yates, Juliet King, Lanny Rosenzweig, Dr. David Grand, Dr. Josh Briley, Dr. Daniel Kirsch, Dr. Siegfried Othmer, Dr. John Rosa, and Dr. Andrew Pleener.

What is the STARR Certification Program?

Mental health is determined by a combination of many factors including lifestyle, genetics, and lived experiences. The STARR Certification Program is an online, self-paced, certification program that helps you to concretely understand how stressful and traumatic experiences are two of the biggest contributing factors that impact our mental health. During the program you will learn the science of how those two factors impact the brain/body connection. You will also learn how mental health fluctuates across a continuum, constantly moving to different states. The world’s leaders in “Gym for the Brain” modalities then collectively teach you the many ways to work on and repair our impacted neural circuitry and return it to more optimal states.
