About Us


Hanna Institute equips and empowers individuals and organizations with the trauma-informed tools they need to help people in their community. From comprehensive trauma-informed care (TIC) training and certifications for individuals and organizations to large-scale program partnerships, the Institute works alongside youth and the community to break the cycle of trauma and create a healthier and more hopeful future for all. 

Staffed by experts in their field and augmented by respected partners, the Institute builds on global research, peer-reviewed best practices, and contributing to the growing body of knowledge surrounding trauma care while utilizing cutting-edge theories and promising practices designed to deliver applied knowledge on Hanna’s campus and beyond. All courses are specifically tailored to enhance the experience of the learner. Whether it’s educators, health care professionals, or those working in nonprofit organizations – our bilingual and bicultural trainings place equity and inclusion as a top priority in our work.
