Find projects on the following types of trauma:
Sometimes things happen to people that are unusually or especially frightening, horrible, or traumatic.
There are many different types of potentially traumatic events or experiences, from accidents and disasters to interpersonal violence including sexual transgressions.
Trauma can happen to anyone, at any age, from children to the elderly. Some populations may be particularly at risk, such as people living in disaster prone areas, or in regions struck by war and conflict. Other examples are refugees, forcibly displaced persons, or individuals working in so-called high risk occupations (e.g military, police, frontline workers). The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have increased exposure to potentially traumatic events.
All these aspects of trauma need to be globally addressed. Professionals involved in the GCTS are working together on these topics listed above.
