Instinctual Trauma Response™ Training

For the ATC 102 4-Day Course visit LIVE COURSES.

Our mission is to make the effective Instinctual Trauma Response™ processes 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 and long-lasting treatments.

The ITR Training Institute teaches the Instincual Trauma Response approach to resolving trauma symptoms by using Graphic Narrative™ and Externalized Dialogue™ processes.

As forerunners in the emerging Mental Health Emancipation Movement, psychiatrist Dr. Lou Tinnin and art therapist Dr. Linda Gantt developed and administered the ITR™  in hospitals and clinics for over 40 years. Dr. Linda Gantt now focuses on training the next generation of trauma specialists and to help their clients resolve trauma and thrive in their lives.
