Traumatic events in the psychiatric population are prevalent, complex, and often are repeated and ongoing (1–4). As psychiatry residents progress through their training, they have contact with traumatized patients and families from the initial phases of assessment through the recovery process. For example, according to Kessler (5) PTSD is the third most common anxiety disorder in the United States. An increasingly large body of literature about trauma-associated disorders, treatment modalities, and training exists. However, systematic trauma training remains limited and has yet to be incorporated into the core curriculum of graduate training programs, including residency training in psychiatry (2, 3, 6, 7). Trauma training, adapted for psychiatric residents, is of particular importance considering the specific challenges trainees face during the postgraduate years, where a shift from more concrete to more process-oriented thinking can be observed. Also, teaching psychiatry residents is particularly challenging because residents rotate through different services (8). Each service has its own population, culture, and goals and objectives. A comprehensive teaching program for trauma is difficult to integrate into an already-existing complex teaching curriculum, as it must allow for flexibility. Teaching and supervision serve the purpose of enabling residents to reflect on their clinical experiences, along with peer interactions, study groups, and seminars. The Trauma Training Modular Curriculum (TTMC) was created to address the various needs as well as to integrate into ongoing psychiatric training the growing body of literature ranging from assessment of trauma and trauma associated disorders to various treatment interventions.
