The NIP Integrative Trauma Program is a professional community dedicated to the clinical exploration, understanding, assessment, and treatment of traumatic experience.

The Integrative Trauma Program (ITP) has two separate and complementary training programs that may be attended independently, sequentially, or simultaneously.  

  1. Certificate Program in Integrative Trauma Studies: A 9-month program of weekly seminars offering CE contact hours and leading to a Certificate in Integrative Trauma Studies. Clinically-oriented seminars integrate psychoanalytic/psychodynamic concepts with contemporary topics and issues in the understanding and treatment of trauma. 
  2. Clinical Affiliate Program: A 2-year program for EMDR-trained, experienced clinicians dedicated to the treatment of trauma. Clinicians provide reimbursed treatment of patients referred from NIP's Trauma Treatment Service, attend weekly group supervision with EMDRIA-approved Consultants and monthly clinical seminars led by senior faculty members and supervisors in the Integrative Trauma Program. 

Trauma Colloquia
ITP Colloquia are scheduled 4 times during the academic year on Thursday evenings. Presentations cover a range of specialized topics in traumatology and trauma treatment and are open to the NYC professional community.

EMDR Training
The Integrative Trauma Program offers an annual comprehensive EMDR training with Karen Alter-Reid, PhD, the Program's Senior EMDR Consultant and Trainer.

Trauma Treatment Center
The Trauma Treatment Center provides low-cost, short-term trauma treatment for adults. Treatment is informed by the integration of EMDR and other trauma-related modalities with psychoanalytic/psychodynamic psychotherapy. Click here to learn more about the clinical services offered by the Trauma Treatment Center.
