The Traumatic Stress Institute fosters the transformation of organizations and service systems to trauma-informed care (TIC) through the delivery of whole-system consultation, professional training, coaching, and research.

Yesterday Klingberg Family Centers formally opened its new Hartford office in the Colt area of the South End. The offices are in a refurbished manufacturing building. This new office is also the site of the Traumatic Stress Institutes’s new training space. Present at the ribbon cutting was US Representative John Larson, who helped Klingberg obtain Federal funds for the project. Also participating in the ceremonies were Klingberg’s President Rosemarie Burton; the Vice President for Community Services David Laurence Hawley; and Marty Legault, President for the Corporation for Independent Living (CIL). CIL oversaw the extensive renovations of the building and has also moved its corporate offices to the third floor.
