International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies

Theory and Traumatic Stress Studies SIG

 

Mission

The Theory and Traumatic Stress Studies SIG originated when a group of international researchers met at the ISTSS meeting. These researchers were all interested in advancing theoretically based studies in traumatic stress studies. Due to the lack of studies that were theoretically based, the SIG was created. Since the initial meeting there have been some significant advances. This includes a special issue that is coming out in Trauma Psychology: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy, several symposia offered at ISTSS, and discussions for a book. During the sessions at ISTSS, which have been well attended, we have gathered a list of approximately 20 to 30 individuals interested in joining a SIG with this focus. This is a group that can help to generate more theoretical development in our field.
