Our mission is to make the effective ITR available to anyone wanting to heal and resolve their trauma symptoms once and for all. Being trauma-informed is not enough. We believe people need to be “trauma-effective and parts informed." It’s simply not enough to know about the effects of trauma. It is essential to have access to effective approaches and long-lasting results.

The ITR Training Institute teaches Instincual Trauma Response® model.  This is an approach to resolving trauma symptoms by using Graphic Narrative™ and Externalized Dialogue™.

As forerunners in the emerging Mental Health Emancipation Movement, psychiatrist Dr. Lou Tinnin and art therapist Dr. Linda Gantt developed and administered ITR in hospitals and clinics for over 40 years. Dr. Linda Gantt now focuses on training the next generation of trauma specialists and helping individuals resolve trauma and get on the road to recovery.
