In the future, the ISTSS website will house a library of syllabi and classroom presentations to demonstrate the various ways that traumatic stress is being taught around the world. We will also gladly accept your personal accounts of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of teaching about traumatic stress for possible publication on the website. If you are a teacher or trainer and would like to submit your materials or thoughts to share, please contact ISTSS.
