Training and skill building
The expert team of trainers at ITIM offer skill building opportunities ranging from workshops to comprehensive capacity building initiatives. We present evidence-based trainings for media professionals including journalists, communication specialists, photojournalists, filmmakers, and documentarians. These are catered to be culturally and contextually relevant, as well as, to facilitate the practical applications of these innovative skills.
ITIM comes alongside teams, projects, organizations, and companies to support the implementation of a trauma-informed approach in their work. This can range from integrating trauma-informed practices into a film's production plan, training an organization's team to train others in trauma-informed principles, or offering logistical support to facilitate ethical engagement with individuals and communities in the region.
ITIM recognises that interpreters, translators, and fixers are often key contributors to projects. Therefore, we have a branch of ITIM called the Institute of Trauma-Informed Interpretation (ITII). The expert team of trainers at ITII offer an international certification training program for these professionals. It equips them with the skills to apply the international professional standards of this field and a trauma-informed approach to their work. We maintain a network of certified interpreters, translators, and fixers which can serve as a resource to any team. Learn more about this here.
ITIM serves as a production house for select productions that require a high level of expertise in a trauma-informed approach.
