As a member of ISSTD you are entitled to a number of membership benefits. One huge benefit is access to ISSTDWorld and the online network and community of members that this houses. Within ISSTDWorld we have a number of communities all based upon special interests and regions to help our members connect with one another professionally on a deeper level.
Regional Online Communities (ROCs) are open to all ISSTD Members who are located in a specific geographical area. ISSTD ROCs have been developed by members, for members, and are geared to provide ISSTD members with connection and discussion with other members in their area. Currently we have ROCs for the Mid-Atlantic region (US), Southern region (US), Ontario region (CAN), and Australia/New Zealand. We are actively working on representing the rest of the United States in 2023 with ROCs, and adding international groups as interest arises – such as a group that is working on creating an Asia ROC currently. We are looking for volunteers to help standup these groups for the rest of the United States. Interested individuals can fill out this form, and we will connect you with staff and other volunteers interested in your area to help start the process to create your ROC!
We are proud to announce the launch of the Southeastern ROC this month! To join, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to this community.
The Southeastern Regional Online Community has officially been approved! Join us – if you are practicing or living in the states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee or Kentucky. Our ultimate goal is to build a network of helpers in our very own communities that can support us all in bringing more comprehensive care for our clients who experience dissociation. Can’t wait to meet ya’ll!
