Strengthening the ISSTD International Community

On Monday, October 5 ISSTD officially launched its new membership community platform, ISSTDWorld. This new platform is designed for members to engage with each other through discussions, resource sharing, committee involvement, and learning opportunities such as the member-only virtual book club.

We are thrilled to report that in just the first three weeks, nearly a third of members have logged into the new system, updated their profile, participated in a discussion, shared a resource or visited the new Member Resources area. If you have not logged into the system, we encourage you to spend a few minutes checking it out. We have put together a User Guide with instructions on how to use the system and additional assistance is available in the FAQ section under the ‘Participate’ tab.

We especially encourage all members to spend a few minutes updating their profile and privacy settings ahead of the launch of the new ‘Find A Therapist’ Directory which will be rolled out as part of the new website in early 2019.

Thank you to our Trail Blazers who helped with the beta testing of the new platform and to all of the committee chairs who have assisted with making this a smooth transition. We are excited to continue to add additional content to the platform over the next several month.

If you are encountering problems logging into the system or need additional assistance, please email and a staff member will be happy to assist.
