International Trauma Treatment program
Co-Sponsor of ORSMP
The International Trauma Treatment Program (ITTP) is a community-supported not-for-profit organization in Olympia, Washington that enhances practitioners’ ability to treat complex trauma resulting from torture, war, and natural disasters. ITTP seeks to restore survivors’ physical and psychological health through treatment and education.
ITTP collaborates with local practitioners living in areas affected by complex trauma to identify and to develop culturally appropriate treatment. These practitioners then assist colleagues in their home countries to do the same, thus greatly increasing the number of practitioners who are able to counteract the effects of complex trauma.
As increasing numbers of practitioners worldwide develop evermore highly effective treatments for complex trauma, those who seek to debilitate entire populations through war and torture are undermined. Consequently, ITTP addresses the root causes of complex trauma while improving methods for its treatment.
