Pros & Cons of Social Media on Trauma and Relief

Jul 09, 2024


Athena Phillips

LCSW, PsyD Candidate    

With over 30 years in behavioral health, I began by aiding developmentally disabled individuals before earning a Magna Cum Laude Bachelor’s in Social Work from Pacific University. My passion for trauma treatment ignited during an internship at the Sexual Assault Resource Center, leading to a Master’s in Social Work from Portland State University. I founded the Integrative Trauma Treatment Center (ITTC) in 2012, focusing on trauma and dissociative disorders. Recognizing the need for holistic approaches, I launched ITTC as an outpatient clinic in Portland, OR, and KALOS for specialized trainings. I expanded my impact globally with online Trauma Coach Certification and The Orenda Project, providing resources worldwide. Locally, I contributed to building mental health capacity, including mHub Rwanda. My dedication persists as a trauma consultant, volunteering within the mHub community and beyond.
