Transforming how society responds to abuse and interpersonal trauma

Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Empowerment) connects those who have suffered trauma with resources necessary for healing rather than coping, provides education to professionals across fields and the public at large that promotes awareness, effective intervention and cutting edge treatment and offers empowerment through producing arts projects that encourage a healing movement.

The Issue


Leading studies show that trauma is a public health crisis and the root cause behind much mental and physical illness, addiction, crime, domestic violence, homelessness and suicide. Effective treatments are available but there is a lack of integration between the trauma, mental health and medical fields and of general awareness on the issue. We exist to change that so that healing from trauma becomes the new normal.


Thank you to all who joined us for our 3rd annual gala, Stars Come Out To Support Healing TREE at 21C in Louisville, KY.

EMDR Therapy Training

“Completely changed my mindset in how to treat our trauma youth. My teens are making progress so much quicker than with previous trauma treatments.  We are no longer taking meds for nightmares relating to PTSD! Can not say enough great things about EMDR and the trainers.” – Trainee
