 What We Do

The Institute of Trauma-Informed Media equips media professionals with the innovative knowledge and skills to create restorative products with those that have experiences of psychological trauma and conflict. By applying evidence-based research from the fields of medicine and psychology to the art of media, we facilitate media professionals to ethically engage with individuals, communities, and the global audience in a manner that offers a restorative and healing experience while simultaneously contributing to a product with greater consistency and depth.
