Correcting the Record about the Role of Science and Controversy in Public Policy

Posted 1 October 2006 in StressPoints by Dean G. Kilpatrick, PhD President, ISTSS

In a recent article in Science, my colleague, Richard McNally (2006), mischaracterized my position about the role of science in public policy concerning traumatic stress issues. McNally cited a column I wrote in Traumatic StressPoints (Kilpatrick, 2006) in the context of a commentary on an excellent article by Dohrenwend and colleagues (Dohrenwend et al., 2006). In his commentary, McNally said, “Indeed the president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies recently urged critics to muffle their dissent, lest the intensity of scientific controversy distract us from attending to the needs of trauma victims.”
