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. 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 40 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. Study to become a trainer with ITR.

"My training with ITR has been a wonderful experience. Dr. Tinnin and Dr. Gantt have built upon their vision for years.   Their trauma work is validated by years of research and practice across the spectrum.  The trainers are outstanding and there is a community of ongoing support for the participants. I would absolutely recommend this process for anyone interested in helping in the healing of trauma."
