Posted 1 July 2004 in StressPoints by The Gender and Trauma Special Interest Group

Team-based care for women veterans in Boston, Mass., consists of integrated physical and mental health care provided at the Women’s Health Center and the Women’s Stress Disorder Treatment Team. These clinics have worked jointly with the National Center for PTSD’s Women’s Health Sciences Division (NCPTSD-WHSD), which supports research related to women’s health. In the past decade, these integrated centers have thrived by providing services to thousands of veterans and have become leaders in the scientific community. In addition, the services provided have expanded to include the Homeless Women Veterans’ Outreach and Case Management Program and the first women veterans’ transitional residence program (TRUST House) in the country. Anniversary proceedings held in May 2004 served to highlight the tremendous accomplishments of these programs in the past decade.

ISTSS Trauma Training Survey Reveals Career Development Opportunities

Posted 1 July 2004 in StressPoints by Robert Orazem, Boston, Massachusetts

In 2002, Patricia Resick and I conducted a Trauma Training Survey on behalf of ISTSS. The purposes of this project were twofold. First, the survey was intended to identify training opportunities that currently are available in the field of trauma. Second, we sought to disseminate this information to individuals interested in developing a career in trauma, especially at the graduate, internship and postdoctoral level. To these ends, training providers were surveyed regarding training opportunities in the field of trauma offered by their institutions. These providers were recruited primarily through notices sent to all ISTSS members and through an announcement posted on the ISTSS Web site, including a link to the online survey.

Results of Survey: Demographics, Trauma Training, Trauma Work Impact and Members of ISTSS

Posted 1 July 2004 in StressPoints by Teri L. Elliott, Stefan E. Schulenberg, and Jessica T. Kaster

Previous studies have investigated the characteristics of mental health professionals (e.g., Elliott, Miltenberger, Kaster-Bundgaard, & Lumley, 1996; Norcross, Karg, & Prochaska, 1997a, 1997b). Yet, there is limited information available on trauma mental health personnel. Learning more about these personnel could more accurately pinpoint training needs. Based on a larger survey of ISTSS members (see Elliott, Schulenberg, Kaster & Peterson, in press), our current report focuses on the demographics and training of this population and the impact of trauma-related work on relationships and well-being.
