Our program will compliment your regular psychotherapy
sessions when it has reached a plateau or a stumbling
block. Our goal is to treat trauma symptoms that
have not been overcome in traditional psychotherapy.
In one or two weeks time our clients are back
home resuming regular sessions with their hometown
therapist. We intend to provide clients with
tools for life that can be used whenever needed.
Hometown therapists can even coach you in the
use of these tools.
Our intentions are to work collaboratively with
the referring therapist to 1) obtain information
about the client being referred 2) invite them
to observe in the treatment process here at ITT
and/or 3) provide follow up information after
the Intensive Individual Trauma Therapy (IITT)
is completed so the referring therapist can follow
through for continuity of care purposes.
After initial telephone or email contact has been made, ITT can provide a client or referring therapist access to our assessment forms. These forms are available via our website with a username and password or by fax or US Mail. After the client has completed the forms our intake clinician and team of trauma therapists review the information to determine if our program can meet the client’s needs. In some cases, we’ll need to schedule a telephone call to gather more information. Once our treatment recommendations are prepared we will contact the client to discuss them and schedule treatment. This intake process is a free service.
To access the ITT screening assessment forms online call (304) 291-2912 to receive the user name and password you’ll need to access these forms. Click here once you have the username and password from ITT.
You can discuss this program with your current
therapist (if you have one). You can begin making
a list of your traumas. You can gather family
photographs, writings (poetry or journals), and/or
art work that will give us a sense of you as
Yes, the program can be divided into two segments.
We can make special arrangements for your needs.
Some people come back for the second week six
months or a year after the first week.
Most of our patients stay in one of the Morgantown area hotels. Two hotels (the Ramada Inn and the Comfort Inn) are less than a mile from ITT. Some children and their families qualify to stay at the Morgantown Ronald McDonald House (RMH) for a nominal nightly fee. If you are interested in learning more about the RMH then you should inquire with your ITT Intake Clinician because reservations cannot be made without a referral from ITT. Please visit our link
for accommodations information.
You are responsible for making your own arrangements
for a room.
The cost of
the hotel is not included in the ITT charges.
Because Morgantown is the home of West Virginia
University there are some times of the year that
virtually all the hotel rooms are rented. We
can advise you on the dates to avoid such as
home football games, Parents’ Day, and graduation.
The program is physically and emotionally demanding.
We recommend that the participants plan a relaxing
dinner, a work-out in a local gym, and a reasonably
early bedtime. There are two malls in Morgantown
and several movie theaters. For those staying
a second week there are some tourist attractions
we recommend for the weekend—Cooper’s Rock
State Forest, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater,
whitewater rafting rivers, and the Canaan Valley.
Pittsburgh is an hour-and-a-half away. If a
friend or family member accompanies you our
support staff can suggest daytime activities.
