The International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) is the only international nonprofit professional society that promotes research and training in the identification and treatment of dissociative disorders and their relationship to developmental, relational, and other traumas. Our mission is to provide a forum for professional and public education and facilitate international communication. Further, we encourage the interaction between professional clinicians and students and/or emerging professionals who are working in the fields of trauma and dissociation.
Individual commitment and passion are necessary in order to tackle advanced research and treatment of dissociative disorders. But they are not enough. We need outstanding, ongoing professional education and information. And we need each other. Together, we can and do make a difference! Click on the membership type below for more information!
