Special Interest Groups

ISTSS is a large, multidisciplinary society. Members involve themselves in ISTSS along two axes: the survivor populations with which they work and the interest areas they have that span survivor groups in scope.

Join ISTSS to Participate in Special Interest Groups

A complete list of survivor population groups and interest areas is included on the membership application. In addition, ISTSS maintains an active committee structure that allows members hands-on participation in program development and implementation.

Questions about SIGs? Or, would you like to create a new SIG? Contact SIG chair, Christian Kristensen, PhD.
