Welcome to the International Trauma Center 2020
The Heart of Trauma Informed Care®
This year marks our 25th Anniversary. The International Trauma Center is devoted to supporting initiatives of nonviolence, social justice and trauma recovery. We do this by building the heart of trauma informed care into social networks most impacted by trauma and exposure to violence. We are dedicated to excellence in the design and development and implementation of psychosocial and trauma responsive and resiliency focused interventions. We are dedicated to sustaining community members in discovering and engaging in their own healing methods.
In honor of all those who have given us the privilege of working with them and in celebration of the courage shown through trauma recovery, we enter our 25thyear welcoming visitors, partners and clients to continue a journey with us into the newest and deepest levels of the heart of trauma informed care innovations.
