Trauma impacts all of us – directly and indirectly. Whether it comes in the wake of hurricanes, gun violence, war or child abuse, individuals and our greater community can be profoundly affected. When traumatic events occur, emotional support is paramount – for healing and our overall health and well-being.


Join Integral Care for a trauma-focused forum on Monday, November 5th. Our panel of experts will explore causes of trauma and resources to support recovery. Panelists include:

  • Elisa Borah, MSW, PhD: A research associate professor at UT Austin’s Steve Hicks School of Social Work, Dr. Borah conducts research to identify and evaluate programming and supports for military members, veterans, spouses and their families. She leads the Military & Veteran Family Program, a joint initiative of the Dell Medical School Department of Psychiatry and the Steve Hicks School of Social Work. In 2015, Dr. Borah developed the Veteran Spouse Network, a program that supports veteran families in Texas.
  • Seanna Crosbie, LCSW-S: The Director of Program & Trauma-Informed Services at Austin Child Guidance Center, Ms. Crosbie oversees their therapy projects and provides leadership for their trauma-informed initiatives. She is a certified trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapist (TF-CBT) with nearly 20 years of experience providing mental health treatment to children and families. Ms. Crosbie led Austin Child Guidance Center in becoming one of the first trauma-informed agencies in Central Texas.
  • Valerie Rosen, MD: An assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UT Dell Medical School, Dr. Rosen’s predominant area of expertise is PTSD and trauma. She is also a regional trainer for Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Dr. Rosen is the developer and medical director for the Restore Program, an intensive outpatient program developed to help people who have been impacted by a recent or past traumatic event, using CPT.
