2018 Annual Conference

Congratulations to the 2018 ISSTD Annual Award Winners!

Those of us who work in the trauma and dissociation field are a prolific, creative and hard-working lot. In the last year, many articles, books and book chapters have been written about complex trauma and dissociation. Research has been creative, inquisitive and critical. Clinical practice and training has expanded, and some of us have expressed ourselves through the creative arts. Others have worked hard behind the scenes to help ISSTD operate efficiently, and to grow in new areas.

Naturally, we want to encourage all this and show our appreciation.

This is where the Awards Committee comes in. The Awards Committee is composed of senior members of the Society who have an in-depth knowledge of the Society and the wider field, as well as an awareness of those who contribute directly to the Society. We are privileged to have Onno Van der Hart, Rich Chefetz and Steve Frankel on our Awards Committee, ably assisted by Lynette Danylchuk (and others, as co-opted). We are most grateful for their efforts.

Each year during October- December they receive nominations for the awards in all categories, evaluate each and then make a decision about Awards, all before our Annual Conference in March.

As Rich Chefetz said last October when he called for nominations for this year’s awards: “Lean in to the reality of making somebody feel real, special, appreciated.”

Well, lots of you did just that. We are happy to announce this year’s winners.
