Trauma Integration Services

Trauma Integration Services

Since 1998 the Institute for Health and Recovery (IHR) has been a state-wide and national leader in trauma informed care and trauma integration planning. We are a team of trauma experts working to promote healing and recovery in our community by providing supports and services to a wide variety of organizations, programs, and providers that are working to develop or sustain their capacity to deliver trauma informed care.

IHR’s Trauma Integration Team provides training, coaching, technical assistance, consultation, and crisis response services to assist organizations in integrating knowledge of trauma into their practices, policies, and services. Our team of trauma specialists work collaboratively with service providers using a trauma informed approach that emphasizes the importance of collaborative and empowering relationships.


Online self-paced trainings are available on the IHR training page and can be accessed at any time. The self-paced trainings include our core trauma curricula as well as other courses that may be of interest to programs and their staff.

Online quarterly trainings are provided for free and are open to all staff. These trainings focus on the basics of trauma informed care as well as specific issues facing providers such as professional boundaries, racial trauma, and trauma and co-occurring disorders.

Site specific training is available for organizations that would like to provide training for staff within their organization. All our curricula are available for on-site or online training and can be tailored according to the needs of each organization.


Coaching is available for organizations that request additional skills-based training to support the practice and integration of trauma informed principles.  Coaching sessions can be delivered online or in-person and can be tailored to meet the needs of the organization.

Technical Assistance

We offer technical assistance to organizations that want to engage in a comprehensive process to improve their ability to provide trauma informed care. We work collaboratively with organizations to develop and implement a trauma integration plan addressing the assessment, training, coaching, and consultation needs of the organization in their effort to become more trauma informed.


We offer consultations with our trauma team to assist organizations in addressing specific topics, cases, or situations using a trauma informed approach. Our team specializes in both clinical and policy issues that may arise in providing trauma informed services.

Crisis Response Services

We provide on-site and virtual crisis response services to BSAS funded organizations throughout the Commonwealth.  The purpose of these services is to support staff and help them recover as quickly as possible after a critical incident in the workplace.  

The intention of these services is to lend validation and support to staff, not to critique the way the organization responded during the crisis. They are designed to encourage conversation relating to each person’s reaction to the event.  The dialogue will help elicit strengths and coping strategies and offer participants the opportunity to develop a self-care plan.
