The Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care (ITTIC) was started at the University at Buffalo in 2012 by Research Professor Thomas Nochajski and Clinical Professor Susan Green out of the need for additional trauma-related services, training and support within the University and community at large. Since its inception, ITTIC has provided training and consultation within the systems of child welfare, adult mental health, developmental disabilities, education, criminal justice and the court system.  

Our New Contribution

In January 2020, the Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care released an edited edition of its Trauma-Informed Organizational Change Manual, designed to help organizations and systems plan for, implement and sustain trauma-informed culture change.
