Based in San Bernardino, California, Dr. Nancy Bohl-Penrod has served as the director of The Counseling Team International for nearly three decades. Dr. Nancy Bohl-Penrod holds membership in several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS).
An international membership organization, the AAETS is composed of individuals from a range of professions who provide intervention to survivors of traumatic events. The AAETS seeks to identify expertise among those professionals and provide the standards by which they can improve their trauma intervention practices.
In pursuit of this goal, the AAETS offers 17 specialty certifications in the areas of traumatic stress and crisis management. Members applying for AAETS credentials must meet minimum standards that demonstrate their knowledge, experience, and training in the specialty area. Additionally, AAETS members in good standing who have made significant contributions to the field and to the Academy may apply for diplomate and fellowship status through the AAETS.
