The International Trauma Consortium is a collaboration of researchers and clinicians working in the field of traumatic stress studies.  Their goal is to advance the science and practice of psychotraumatology in order to improve the lives of people affected by trauma. Their aims include:

Develop valid and reliable methods of assessing trauma and trauma-related disorders, and make these tools freely available.

Gather systematic data from around the world on the prevalence of trauma and trauma-related distress.

Identify important risk- and protective factors associated with trauma-related distress across the lifespan and in various cultural contexts.

Develop preventative strategies to minimize the impact of trauma across the lifespan and in various cultural contexts.

Develop efficacious and cost-effective treatments for Complex PTSD that are relevant across the lifespan and in various cultural contexts.

Disseminate and communicate our discoveries to the scientific community and the general public.
