In the future, the ISTSS website will house a library of syllabi and classroom presentations to demonstrate the various ways that traumatic stress is being taught around the world. We will also gladly accept your personal accounts of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of teaching about traumatic stress for possible publication on the website. If you are a teacher or trainer and would like to submit your materials or thoughts to share, please contact ISTSS.

    The detrimental effects of deployment and combat-related traumatic stress on U.S. military families during the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to be documented. Increased posttraumatic stress symptoms and other mental health problems (e.g., depression, substance abuse) and physical and traumatic brain injuries are not uncommon.

    Chilean trauma professionals are coming together to advance practice and research in the traumatic stress field in Chile and beyond. October 2015 marked two notable events - the official legal formation of a new Chilean professional organization focused on trauma and its impact, and the organization’s second international conference in as many years.

    The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) appreciates the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed revisions to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (also known as the Common Rule) outlined in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in the Federal Register on September 8, 2015. These revisions, which are intended “to modernize, strengthen, and make more effective the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects that was promulgated as a Common Rule in 1991” are critically important to ensuring better protection of human subjects involved in research while facilitating valuable research and reducing burden, delay, and ambiguity for investigators.
