The Crisis, Disaster and Trauma Psychology Section exists to provide its members with a central hub where issues of psychological trauma can be explored, research and evidence-based treatments can be examined, and ongoing standards of best practice can be established.
The Crisis, Disaster and Trauma Psychology Section was formed in 2013 with the goal of creating a 'centre of excellence' in which the concept of psychological trauma can be explored, evidence-based treatments examined, research findings shared and best practice established.
The Section is working to create a framework that will allow its members to share experiences, develop ideas and increase knowledge and skills in trauma psychology.
