Join Us in Seattle in 2022!
Updated July 2021
Welcome! We are so excited to return to an in-person format for our 2022 conference in Seattle. Even better, this year we will be offering both in person and virtual attendance options to connect with as many old friends and new faces as possible. Although we are so thankful that technology allowed us to meet, mingle, and learn from one another in 2020 and 2021, we’re looking forward to the social events and connections that come from being together.
We are living with multiple epidemics including the ongoing effects of childhood trauma, the impact of institutional/system betrayals with multiple “-isms”, aftermath of COVID 19, environmental factors, and more. All of this is overwhelming. As our dissociation lessens and underlying trauma is unmasked, both for those we treat and in the world, we are challenged to search for post-traumatic growth that will lead to a better future.
This conference will not only give us an integrative bio-psycho-social-spiritual lens, but also address the secondary trauma for us as clinicians, teachers, and researchers. We come together to share knowledge, support, and inspiration. Be with us, creating a better future for us all!
We look forward to seeing everyone on in Seattle in 2022!
ISSTD plans to hold the 2022 Annual Conference in-person in Seattle with select presentations available for virtual participation. We are closely monitoring local, national, and international developments related to COVID-19. Any change in conference format will be announced in early 2022.
