Our nature is to heal


Experiences of psychological trauma profoundly change our relationship with our bodies.
Center for Trauma and Embodiment (CFTE) at JRI is dedicated to researching, developing, and training providers in effective, trauma-informed practices that help survivors safely re-connect to their body so that they may engage more fully with their life.

CFTE is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Proceeds provide direct service initiatives to survivors of trauma through our programming, public classes, and trainings.
