CTRI Services

Consulting

We envision a world where everyone is trauma-informed. CTRI’s consultation services can help you develop and implement strategies for workplaces, schools, or in your private practice.

Through clinical consultation, crisis response planning, critical incident group debriefing, disability support, suicide prevention planning, or violence risk assessment, we can help you discover your strengths and support you as you implement positive change, increase safety, and become more trauma-informed. At CTRI, we believe in a strengths-based approach. We choose to start with empathy and curiosity over judgement. Our goal is to help you create environments and connections where everyone can thrive.

The trainer explained things in the most understandable and engaging way I have ever seen. I loved every minute!
Lacey Dewar
Social Worker, Health PEI
We have been teaching the De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations™ workshop to staff and faculty. They appreciate the workshop and the opportunities for self-assessment because the knowledge extends beyond the university context to everyday life. Participants are also able to use the practical tools in a constructive manner to help manage potentially violent situations. While our university is a very safe environment, this workshop gives our staff a better understanding of violence and more tools to make the campus even safer.
Chantal Bertrand
Operations Administrator, Campus Public Safety, McGill University
The De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations Training has become an indispensable training program for our school board. Our team of behavioral consultants have followed the Train-the-Trainer program and are now offering the certification to all principals, teachers, teacher’s aid and other school board staff professionals. The feedback we have received is that the school staff now feels more equipped and competent in managing situations where student’s stress levels and anger begins to escalate without having to retort to physical techniques.
Josée Labonté, M.A.
Psychologie appliquée, MonAvenir, Conseil Scolaire Catholique
This was a highly interactive, respectful workshop, and allowed all participants to truly participate. It was very informative.
