ITR Basics ATC 102 LIVE 2-Day 

Learn how to resolve your client's trauma symptoms quickly, simply and efficiently. Be a Level 2 ITR Certified Trauma Specialist (ITR-CTS) using the Instinctual Trauma Response® model. The learner is guided through the ITR from prescreen to follow-up.  Peer-support and Para-professionals invited. Any group of 3 makes a full class so dates and hours can be customized. 

The live part of each course includes video conferencing with triads and a Certified ITR Instructor and an assistant. It provides individual attention for learners to go at their own pace and gain confidence in their skills, to be able to demonstrate their understanding of trauma resolution using Instinctual Trauma Response® and to show their ability to apply those tasks. It is an experiential course to observe live sessions as well as conduct them. Learn how to deal with different populations and situations. Consuktation Calls are needed to be fully certified as an ITR-Certified Trauma Specialist (ITR-CTS).

Instinctual Trauma Response®

According to the American Psychological Association, over 50% of people will experience trauma in their lives – and the incidence of trauma continues to grow.

Unfortunately, this is not news to most people. If you work with people you have and will continue to encounter many individuals who have been traumatized. They may present with symptoms of dissociation, PTSD, depression, anxiety or a host of other behavioral and psychological issues.

The challenge lies in identifying – and treating – the root cause, not just the symptoms. This is where Instinctual Trauma Response® can help. Trauma is not a life sentence. In our work, we see symptoms greatly reduced or completely eliminated, and it doesn't take years to do it". Dr. Linda Gantt, Art Therapist and Co-Founder of the ITR™.

The Mental Health Emancipation Movement

Everyone has the right to be healed and help others heal. ITR® training is available to you no matter what your degree or background. Psychoeducation alone can significantly change a person's understanding of what they are experiencing after trauma based on what the brain and body do biologically.

We don't ask “What’s wrong with the person?,” we ask “What’s happened to the person?”

ITR is simple, fast, and effective. We recommend people work with a licensed mental health provider, but sometimes this is not possible or desired.

Most of the courses are approved for CE credits by both the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

ITR is Trauma Effective for Adults and Children

What else is different about ITR?

  • Treatment time to success– hours vs years: Unlike many other psychodynamic approaches, processing a single traumatic event can happen quickly, even in as little as one session.
  • Integrates seamlessly with other therapeutic models: Regardless of your psychodynamic or psychoanalytic approach, ITR adapts to become part of your process. Intensive Trauma Recovery is also available to team up with providers to do intensive work with qualified clients.
  • Can be used with both children and adults: This method can be applied to clients as young as 3 – or 93.

With over 30 years of clinical experience helping individuals dealing with trauma and other mental health challenges, psychiatrist Dr. Lou Tinnin and art therapist Dr. Linda Gantt developed and tested the approach in their practices. Dr. Linda Gantt now focuses on training the next generation of therapists to help their clients resolve trauma and improve their lives.


I love ITR. I think it will revolutionize mental health and trauma treatment. I think everyone should be trained in the ITR model. It’s effective. it’s quick, but most of all it reduces trauma symptoms and that’s what we want, these children and these adults to have healthy, happy lives."

-Danni Davis, LCSW, CCSOT, CITRI

“This stuff is unbelievable. I say it’s like how Bill Wilson and the 12 steps changed the face of addiction. I’ve been working and struggling with this trauma for 24 years. Finally, some relief. We have got to get the word out there!!

I’m free of my dad’s abuse and it was truly horrific. I made more progress in one weekend than I made in 20 years. And I had been trying really hard and had some pretty good help. But I only made marginal progress. With the ITR years of distress melted away. I’m so, so grateful. “
