Educational Need


The ISTSS Annual Meeting provides a forum for sharing research, clinical strategies, public policy concerns and theoretical formulations on trauma. It is an international assembly of professionals and students representing an array of disciplines including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, counselors, researchers, administrators, victim advocates, journalists, clergy and others with an interest in the study and treatment of traumatic stress. Speakers are strongly requested to avoid unnecessary jargon and to make their work and its implication to the traumatic stress field as accessible as possible to those who do not share their particular perspective and type of scientific approach. This is designed to facilitate increased understanding of what different types of researchers (e.g., basic scientists, clinical researchers) focusing on different types of traumatic stressors (e.g., child maltreatment, disasters, terrorism, war) using different research methods and perspectives (e.g., epidemiology, genetics, psychosocial, psychobiological) have found as well as what the implications of their work are for the traumatic stress field. Our aspirational goal is to establish a jargon-free zone in which experts maximize communication of their work, findings and implications in a way that facilitates understanding and cross-fertilization among researchers, clinicians and policy makers from other perspectives.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review and identify updates to prominent and emergent traumatic stress theories and methodologies, and their applications to the diversity of trauma-impacted populations
  2. Discuss advances in research and practice in the traumatic stress field which consider multiple dimensions, from neurobiology to phenomenology
  3. Identify cross-disciplinary solutions to dissemination and implementation challenges facing traumatic stress researchers and practitioners
