Join us in funding some of these important research projects. Instinctual Trauma Response needs “supported” research to prove its effectiveness. We have different organizations willing to work with us. Now we need the initial funding to do a Random Control Trial (RCT).
Here are some different organizations willing to do ITR research:
Solara Mental Health: https://solaramentalhealth.com/
Kids to Love: https://www.kidstolove.org/
Safe Harbor: https://safeharborshelter.com/
Baltimore County DSS: https://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/departments/social-services/protective-services
Baltimore County Department of Social Services has been using ITR with their children and families involved in Protective Services. ITR outcome data needs to be complied to show the incredible results they found using ITR. Help For Trauma Education and Research has the right people to do it, we just need to fund them. $10,000
Children’s Group Homes:
We are working to partner with University of Maryland and research using Instinctual Trauma Response® to start providing the new standard of a Quality Residential Treatment Program Traditionally these homes “warehouse” children until they age out of the system, where they are often time picked up by human traffickers. There is not much treatment given to these children to resolve the many traumas they have experienced in the system. This work is crucial to do as soon as possible.
Help For Trauma Education and Research wants to partner with police, firefighters and military to establish and train their Health and Wellness supports programs to have continuity of care across all levels of the programs. ITR provided psychoeducation with skills and strategies to work in the middle of trauma. Peer Support and Intensive time-limited treatment should be available.
Help For Trauma Education and Research is looking to partner with a hospital to bring trauma psychoeducation and time-limited treatment to the staff. Using the ITR intensive program would radically change work quality of the medical and administrative staff and flow does to the patient satisfaction. Traumatic Stress effects everything!
Help For Trauma Education and Research is actively supporting Dr. Terri Strodthoff from Alma Center and Dr. Dimitri Topitzes from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee to conduct a proof of concept research study using the ITR® approach. This research is crucial in spreading the word about traumatic stress and how it affects people and how to resolve it in a time-limited fashion. The Alma Center works with men from the Criminal Justice System, its re-entry program structure, and the results of that implementation effort. A group of 20 men on parole will have a 20-hour intensive program using the ITR model in addition to the traditional program reentry program, and a comparison group of men will only receive the traditional program. $50,000
