International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies

Aging, Trauma and the Life Course SIG

 

Mission

The Aging, Trauma, and the Life Course special interest group aims to appeal to researchers, clinicians, and policymakers from all disciplines who study trauma and aging or work with older trauma survivors (combat veterans or other survivors of war; Holocaust survivors; sexual trauma survivors; etc.), and who are interested in the unique ways in which trauma experienced at various points across the life course interacts with developmental factors to influence health and well-being. We aim to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and communication among researchers, clinicians, policymakers and other professionals who are concerned with the impact that trauma has throughout the aging process, and to help disseminate knowledge regarding trauma and aging.
