Advancing the understanding of processes mediating trauma recovery

The Institute for Trauma Recovery is a multidisciplinary, multi-departmental team working together towards the goal of advancing understanding of the processes mediating recovery after trauma and to develop interventions that promote rapid recovery and prevent chronic symptom development. We value the opportunity to recruit and develop outstanding faculty and research team members who are passionate about improving the care of individuals who have experienced trauma. Our success is entirely due to the efforts of our phenomenal team.

Our scholarly culture is driven by our devotion to the recovery of individuals experiencing trauma.
