Global Trauma Recovery Institute

Who We Are

A missional initiative by Missio Seminary and under the leadership of Dr. Heather Evans and Dr. Philip Monroe, the institute consists of a clinical faculty able to teach, train, and supervise individuals and groups seeking to enhance effective ministry and provide best clinical practices.

What We Do

We provide high quality continuing educational resources, skills training, and case consultation for mental health clinicians, ministry leaders, and professionals interested in addressing the needs of psychosocial trauma victims in the United States and around the world.

Why We Do It

Trauma is the mission field of the 21st century. Trauma disrupts life, dissolves relationships and hinders faith development wherever it is experienced. As an expression of the Gospel, missional Christians follow Jesus into the world to care for the least of these suffering the effects of trauma.
