Who We Are
Trauma Practice for Healthy Communities offers free online clinician-led group programs and resources for trauma recovery, providing accessible and transformative care for individuals across Ontario.
Dr. Anna Baranowsky is the Founder and President of the Board of Directors of Trauma Practice for Healthy Communities. Due to a severe lack of trauma service provision, and growing income inequalities, Dr. Baranowsky recognized that long wait times and lack of skilled care in the public system meant limited access for many individuals seeking trauma services. Trauma Practice for Healthy Communities was born through the mission of building a new way of healing communities through accessible, expert facilitated, and trauma-informed mental health care.
Dr. Baranowsky is a Clinical Psychologist and the current CEO of the Traumatology Institute. She has over 18 years of experience working with trauma survivors, and training professional care providers in this field nationally and internationally. More about Dr. Baranowsky +
