Member Engagement Committee

Lisa Danylchuk

The Member Engagement Committee serves the membership by connecting new members, and those interested in becoming more involved, with Committee Chairs who are seeking assistance. We seek to match the talents of our membership with the needs of leadership, to help move the organization and its members forward together.

ISSTD is an organization hugely dependent on the involvement and assistance of its membership. Without our volunteers – which include our entire Board, our Presidents, all our Committee Chairs and all our Committee Members – ISSTD would not function the way it does now.

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.

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.
