1.The 2002 Symposium of the Japan Society for Traumatic Stress Studies

Held in Tokyo on 2nd and 3rd of March this inaugural symposium was well attended by health care professionals from many fields including nurses, social workers, doctors, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, community workers and educators.

At the symposium there was a very dynamic atmosphere with many interesting presentations and open panel discussions, including the introductory keynote presentation by Dr Takako Konishi and including guest presentations from Bonnie L. Green of Washington University, the current president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and fellow ISTSS member Dr Jonathan R.T. Davidson from Duke University.

It was encouraging to discover that the JSTSS has established itself within a year with an initial membership of over 300 health care professionals concerned with trauma and PTSD related problems within Japan, including domestic violence, sexual abuse and bullying. Equally, if not more encouraging, was to see that women were equally well represented, not only within the membership of the JSTSS but also within those who gave presentations and participated in the panel discussions.
