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. Discuss emerging scientific evidence that can inform and propel dissemination of evidence based approaches to assessment and treatment of trauma related problems.
  2. Identify unique challenges to providing evidence based care, including in low resource, underserved settings, and recognize potential approaches to improving access to care.
  3. Describe novel ways that treatments are being adapted to improve targeting of symptoms as well as decrease burden and difficulties associated with accessing care.
  4. Discuss the latest innovations in mechanism research, as a means of improving the precision of prevention and intervention approaches.
