Trauma Assessment SIG

Mission Statement

The primary goal of the Trauma Assessment & Diagnosis SIG (TAD-SIG) is to establish a focus within ISTSS to promote increased knowledge about state-of-the-art methods, procedures, and instrumentation in assessing trauma exposure and traumatic stress symptoms. We intend to create a platform for education, collaboration and dissemination, for clinicians and researchers interested in assessment and diagnosis within the traumatic stress field. We conduct our SIG meetings at the annual ISTSS conventions.
