We bring together clinicians and researchers from around the world who understand the scope and consequences of traumatic exposure and advocate for the field of traumatic stress.

“There aren’t many psychologists conducting trauma research and clinical work near me. ISTSS has helped me build a professional network that spans the globe.”

—Sacha McBain, Early Career Member

“Being part of ISTSS provides me not just knowledge regarding PTSD, but also a sense of being part of a warm, friendly and wise Global Community, which is committed to people and has an interest in developing, expanding, and making reachable for everyone the scientific progress in the field.”

—Carolina Salgado, International Member

Membership Rates

ISTSS offers a number of membership options to meet your individual needs—including multiyear memberships. This allows members to lock in current rates by pre-paying for membership. ISTSS members who select a two- or three-year membership package do so at a 10% discount. The discount applies to membership dues and not the Journal of Traumatic Stress Studies (JTS) print subscriptions fees.
 
ISTSS membership is on an anniversary dues cycle, meaning membership begins on the date the membership dues payment is processed and extends for one year. Learn more about the ISTSS membership anniversary dues cycle
