International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies 23rd Annual Meeting: "Preventing Trauma and its Effects: A Collaborative Agenda for Scientists, Practitioners, Advocates and Policy Makers"
This conference will highlight the advancement and exchange of knowledge about the prevention of traumatic events and maladaptive trauma-related reactions. (Authors)
This conference will focus on prevention issues and provides a forum for the exchange of information related to traumatic stress.
Our goal is to foster communication between presenters and participants about science, practice, policy and advocacy related to: (1) preventing trauma exposure itself; (2) preventing trauma-related adverse mental health outcomes once exposed to severe stress; and (3) preventing the recurrence of trauma exposure, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related sequelae. By sharing multi-disciplinary knowledge about prevention from multiple perspectives, cultures, countries, and stakeholders, information that can foster effective prevention programs will be enhanced. As always, science and practice related to tertiary prevention (clinical treatment to reduce impairment) will be considered. Proposals that promote the exchange of new knowledge or information will be given priority. (NCTSN)
