The International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation is an international, non-profit, professional association organized to develop and promote comprehensive, clinically effective and empirically based resources and responses to dissociation and to address its relevance to other theoretical constructs. The ISSTD engages governmental, institutional, media, and other organizational entities on the pertinent issues related to trauma and dissociation. As such we represent the interests of our patients in their search for health, and advocate for access to care, improved diagnostic and treatment programs, research on trauma and dissociation, education of professionals, and education of the public.
From time to time we publish communications to various groups. We have recently begun to catalog them here so that both the members of ISSTD and the general public can identify the issues and become better educated about what is going on in this increasingly small, and increasingly high stakes world in which we all live.
