The Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care


Providing research and training for organizations on trauma and trauma-informed care since 2012.

The UB School of Social Work’s Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care (ITTIC) helps organizations and individuals understand the effects of trauma and ensure that service systems do not retraumatize vulnerable populations. Through collaborative partnerships and funded research, we work with agencies to provide training, consultation, coaching and evaluation to facilitate trauma-informed culture change and meet your organization’s goals.

Work With Us

We collaborate with agencies and organizations to provide education, training, consultation, coaching, and evaluation services on trauma and trauma-informed approaches. Our services are always tailored to your organization's unique needs. Collaborate with us to develop a work plan that meets your goals and aligns with best practices.
