Training Information

Trauma is a major public health problem, yet many therapists and other professionals have not been trained in recognizing or treating it.

Dr Linda Gantt ATR-BC, a well-known art therapist, and researcher, and her late husband Dr Louis Tinnin (The Instinctual Trauma Response™, The ITR method was developed by Dr Louis Tinnin), a psychiatrist, worked with trauma survivors of all ages. They condensed over 3 decades of clinical and hospital experiences into training and tools to assist you in helping people be freed from the chains of the past, live in the present, and thrive in the future! Join us on the mission to free people from trauma and change mental health once and for all.

Trauma can be healed and it doesn’t take years to do it.
