I noticed a few weeks back that the ISTSS database only has a category for PTSD, but not one for Complex PTSD. There are relational trauma categories for the causes of CPTSD (Physical/Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse/Assault/Harassment In Childhood Or Adulthood, Domestic Violence) but nothing for the specific problem we are all dealing with - CPTSD. 

So I asked one of the graduate student Co-Chairs of the Complex Trauma Special Interest Group at ISTSS (I'm a Co-Chair) to look into this and see if we can get this changed. She did and the person in charge of the database is going to bring this to the ISTSS leadership for approval.

Will post if/when I hear something - fingers crossed!
