We are proud and happy to invite you to Vilnius, the Capital of Lithuania. This is going to be the first ESTSS Conference in Eastern Europe. Complicated history of this region will be an inspiring background for professional meetings, establishing new contacts, and an outstanding venue for meeting old friends.
ESTSS conference will reflect and represent research and practice diversity of European psychotraumatology. ESTSS conference organizers invite participants of the Conference to discuss the social context of trauma, including acknowledgement of trauma, social support, and linking traumatic stress field among different professionals and educating society about trauma and recovery.
The Conference will also focus on clinical practice. Although we know about remarkable resilience of majority of survivors, the burden of PTSD in Europe and around the globe is growing. With natural disasters, military conflicts, interpersonal violence, accidents and other traumatic events happening around the world there is a huge responsibility for professionals to provide the best care for trauma survivors suffering from stress-related disorders.
Warm wishes from Vilnius!
