Global Meetings

By holding meetings outside the U.S., ISTSS aims to:

  • Disseminate and exchange evidence-based knowledge throughout the world
  • Increase the global profile of ISTSS
  • Develop strong global collaborations within the traumatic stress field
  • Develop capacity to deliver evidence-based interventions practice across the world
  • Facilitate the transformation of ISTSS into a truly global organization

Four different types of meeting have been identified:

  1. Preparatory Meetings

    To be held in areas without a STSS or with a developing STSS. Preparatory meetings will usually involve one ISTSS speaker giving a lecture and/or a workshop within another meeting. They will be used to start building a relationship between ISTSS and those involved in the field of traumatic stress locally. They will aim to create awareness of ISTSS, explore a later ISTSS meeting and the development of a local STSS.

  2. Half-day or one-day ISTSS PMIs

    To be held in collaboration with an affiliate society.

  3. One- or two-day ISTSS Meetings

    To be held anywhere in the world as long as undertaken in close collaboration with local STSS if existent. A local organization committee with ISTSS co-chair and ISTSS speakers will primarily organize these meetings.

  4. Two- to three-day ISTSS Conferences

    To be held in places not covered by well established regional STSS organizations. If a less established local STSS exists it should be closely collaborated with.
