ISTSS Treatment Guidelines The revised Treatment Guidelines presented in Effective Treatments for PTSD, Second Edition, were developed under the auspices of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment Guidelines Task Force established by the Board of Directors of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) in 2005. The revised version of the guidelines replaces those published in 2000 and are based on an extensive review of the clinical and research literature prepared by experts in each field and intended to assist clinicians who provide treatment for adults, adolescents and children with PTSD. Because clinicians with diverse professional backgrounds provide mental health treatment for PTSD, the Guidelines were developed with interdisciplinary input. The Treatment Guidelines, published in Effective Treatments for PTSD: Second Edition, found here are protected under copyright of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

Children with Challenging Behavior Self-care for providers Professionals who work with trauma survivors in an open, engaged, and empathic way and who feel responsible or committed to helping them are likely to experience indirect trauma. That means that they will be transformed by the work. The way helpers understand and experience the world and themselves is changed as they enter into the world of the survivor. While trauma work can be very meaningful and rewarding, it can also be very difficult and painful. The changes helpers experience in their identities, world views, and spirituality affect both the helpers' professional relationships with clients and colleagues and their personal relationships.

Learning and the Emerging Science of Behavior Change, aka 'Nudging' The language of learning today is full of references to “softness” and “openness.” Software, soft skills, soft performance, and the softening up of school knowledge go hand-in-hand with open source, open access and open educational resources in much current thinking about networked learning. How might this softening and opening up of the language of networked learning influence how learners think, perceive, feel and act? Softening Up Education It is important to think about learning in terms of behavior change because all educational interactions affect how the learner thinks, feels, acts and behaves. The contemporary connected learner travels continually between formal and informal sites of learning, building networks of knowledge through the use of sophisticated software and the real-world application of soft skills, positive attitudinal dispositions, and behavioral competencies.

The Sanctuary Model The National Center for Trauma-Informed Care SAMHSA's National Center for Trauma-Informed Care (NCTIC) is a technical assistance center dedicated to building awareness of trauma-informed care and promoting the implementation of trauma-informed practices in programs and services. Traumatic experiences can be dehumanizing, shocking or terrifying, singular or multiple compounding events over time, and often include betrayal of a trusted person or institution and a loss of safety. Trauma can result from experiences of violence. Trauma includes physical, sexual and institutional abuse, neglect, intergenerational trauma, and disasters that induce powerlessness, fear, recurrent hopelessness, and a constant state of alert. Trauma impacts one's spirituality and relationships with self, others, communities and environment, often resulting in recurring feelings of shame, guilt, rage, isolation, and disconnection.
