Claim ISTSS 2021 CE/CME

Attending the session “live” or "semi-live": If you are claiming CE or CME credit for the content you tune in to live, you will need to complete your session evaluation online following the conference. 

Watching a recorded session asynchronously: If you are claiming CE/CME for a recorded session you watch asynchronously, you will need to complete the evaluation and take the quiz. 

Attending a partial session live and the rest recorded: If you are claiming CE/CME for a session you started, but left early and watched the recording at a later date, you must complete the evaluation and quiz questions. 

The link to submit your session evaluation will be sent within one week of the end of the conference. The availability of quiz questions, and thus CE/CME credits, for recorded content, is based on whether presenters submitted them.

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.

Conference Learning Objectives

  1. Identify contextual factors related to trauma and traumatic stress within and across each level of the social ecology including relationships, communities, institutions, and cultures.
  2. Describe how contextual factors related to trauma and traumatic stress can be harnessed to optimize treatment approaches.
  3. Discuss innovations in research and practice that incorporate social-ecological and systemic factors into a more holistic understanding of trauma and its effects.

Satisfactory Completion
