There is also significant controversy in the field about some existing or proposed categories that are seen as ‘milder’, such as adjustment disorder or prolonged grief disorder. Some have challenged the validity and utility of these categories. At the same time, there is evidence that some clinical phenomena that have up to now been considered sub-threshold for diagnosis are associated with poor adjustment and a variety of negative mental health outcomes over time. In general, to help countries to reduce disease burden associated with mental disorders, the classification system must be usable and useful for health care workers around the world. With ICD-11, there appears to be a unique opportunity to produce such a system.10 Preliminary Program

  • 68. ISTSS 28th Annual MeetingInternship and Postdoctoral Program Networking FairFinding an internship or postdoctoral fellowship that features trauma specific training can be difficult. In an attempt to ease thisburden, the student section of ISTSS is offering this session to provide an opportunity for students to talk with representatives ofvarious internship and/or postdoctoral fellowship programs who offer rotations or specializations in the clinical and/or researchaspects of working with trauma. The training programs will have the opportunity to recruit potential interns and postdoctoral fellows,while the students will have the opportunity to locate these programs, meet representatives, and ask any questions they have aboutthe experiences offered and the application process. As this event happens early November, students who are applying this year forinternship and postdoctoral positions have the opportunity to meet some of the folks they will be seeing within the next month or soat interviews. For many, ‘putting a face with a name’ can decrease some of the anxiety that comes with this process. Programs fromacross the United States will be invited and these programs will represent a diverse set of clinical interests including military andveterans, children, sexual assault populations, prison populations, refugees and general community. Additionally, a representative willbe present at this event to discuss the Fulbright Program and opportunities for international study, training, research, exchange andcollaboration.This networking session will be Friday, November 2 from 1:45 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. and has been a highlight of past conferences, andaccording to student reports has been effective in connecting students with appropriate training sites.
