ITR Training Institute offers a variety of trauma-effective courses to the public and mental health providers. The ITR courses are designed to inform a person about trauma, how the body and brain work with it, and how to deal with it simply, quickly and effectively. ITR is adaptable for different kinds of service delivery, can be used with children 3 years old, adolescents and adults, It does not require reliving, and can be used with traumas of all kinds (including preverbal).
ITR’s Level 1 Accelerated Traumatology Course 101/Peer Support is for any person wanting to know how to be trauma-effective and a ITR Certified® Peer Support Provider.
The Level 2 and 3 advanced courses assure proficiency in using Instinctual Trauma Response® (ITR) with any and all traumas in practice. We do not restrict education. Anyone can learn ITR. A practitioner must know their own state laws.

There are over 500 practitioners trained to use in the last 7 years and many are ITR Certified Trauma Therapists. Our numbers are growing exponentially as clients and mental health practitioners are finding the most prominent, evidence-based approaches are lacking in their ability to fully resolve complex trauma on all the levels necessary for full recovery.
The focus for 2023 is to train more practitioners to use the ITR® approach and reach more first responders to teach them how to become trauma-effective.
We want to be able to fund community health centers and other non-profits to learn ITR and empower their communities with effective and affordable traumatic stress treatment.
