Traumatic Stress Institute / Center for Adult & Adolescent Psychotherapy (TSI/CAAP)
On April 28, 2006, we closed both our main office in South Windsor, Connecticut, and the satellite office in Northampton. After nearly 20 years of pursuing our passion, work, and values in our organization, we—Dan Abrahamson and Laurie Pearlman, TSI/CAAP’s co-directors—decided to make changes in our professional lives. Our commitment to improving access to mental health services, increasing understanding of the psychological impact of trauma, and helping victims of violence restore meaning and wholeness to their lives will continue in our futures. Dan has moved into an exciting position at the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C., where he will have the opportunity to affect policy and provide support for state psychology associations. Laurie has increased her international work through the Headington Institute and the public education project in East Africa and continues consulting to psychotherapists, doing professional training, and contributing to the professional literature on direct and vicarious trauma.

We are extremely pleased that as of March 30th, 2006, Klingberg Family Centers, based in New Britain, CT, (www.klingberg.org) assumed ownership of the Traumatic Stress Institute name. Under the direction of Steven Brown, Psy.D. (email@example.com), Klingberg will continue TSI’s professional training activities, with a primary focus on Risking Connection training programs.
TSI’s sister, non-profit organization, TREATI (Trauma Research, Education, and Training Institute, Inc.) continues to support mental health and other social service professionals in their work with trauma survivors through research, community education, and professional training related to traumatic stress and vicarious traumatization. TREATI’s training programs continue through various channels. We welcome you to visit the TREATI web site over time for further information.
We want to thank all of you who collaborated with us, who contributed to the growth and quality of our work. Our work together and with the community was stimulating and rewarding for us, and we are proud of the legacy of TSI/CAAP.
