The Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM) group intervention was developed at Community Connections in the 1990s by clinicians led by Dr. Maxine Harris. In the years since then, more than 1500 clinicians in over twenty states have been trained in this model. Based in both clinical experience and the research literature, TREM has become one of the major trauma recovery interventions for women. (See regarding its evidence base.)
