Website Committee

D Michael Coy, MA, LICSW, ISSTD Treasurer and Webmaster

We’re making great progress on the new website. What a project it has been! Hot off the presses, here are some updates:

ISSTDWorld has been up and running since October 2018, and, even with the learning curve, it has really taken off. It offers opportunities for creating community within ISSTD that previously were beyond our grasp, as well as a brand new, public-facing Therapist and Treatment Facility Finder.  » Read More

News from the Professional Training Program

Su Baker, MEd, Professional Training Program Chair

It has been about a year since our last update to members and it has been busy.

The teleseminar format for teaching in a “virtual classroom” continues to grow and is very successful. There are currently two courses on adult complex trauma and dissociative disorders available in the teleseminar format, with two parts to each course. Currently, there is at least one section of each of these four courses being taught and in some cases several sections are currently being taught.

A Certificate from ISSTD’s Center for Advanced Studies in Trauma and Dissociation is the gold standard in trauma education. It reflects the standards of ISSTD, the oldest professional organization that is dedicated to the understanding and treatment of severely traumatized people.

Finance Committee

D. Michael Coy, MA, LICSW, Chair, Finance Committee

Greetings from ISSTD’s Finance Committee! What a year it’s been thus far—and it’s only August. Thankfully, mid-year is a relatively quiet time of the year for finance in ISSTD, and so maybe the best time to offer an update on goings on.

Looking backward to the start of 2018, there were big changes afoot: long-time Treasurer Christine Forner shifted into the role of President-Elect, leaving an open spot for a new Treasurer.

Karen Hopenwasser, MD
Vivien Pender, MD

Together we work to develop our collaborative relationship with the UN.

Member Engagement Committee

Logan Larson, LPC, Member Engagement Committee Co-Chair

The ISSTD would not have been born, nor would it survive, without its member-volunteers! Currently co-chaired by Logan Larson and Lisa Danylchuk, what used to be known as the Volunteer Committee has recently been “rebranded”. Now, known as the Member Engagement Committee, the group is dedicated to helping members find their place within the ISSTD. Although in the past this committee has been a committee of one or two, restructuring has allowed us to grow and ensure that those who want to be more engaged are able to do so.

Child and Adolescent Special Interest Group

The Child and Adolescent Special Interest Group (C&A SIG) was formed several years ago by a group of ISSTD members who work with children and adolescents. The C&A SIG grew since its conception, and currently includes over 60 members who work with traumatized and dissociative children and adolescents all around the world. An email list-serve dedicated to the C&A SIG allows group members to share resources and referrals, ask clinical questions, and brainstorm about the field.
