Existing and Emerging Trauma & Stress Research in one place. 

We wanted to create a space in conjunction with and yet separate and apart from our Resource Room that provided a more targeted focus on what the research is offering to the community of both trauma care providers and those who are personally impacted by traumatic events to support their recovery. Here you'll find data on a wide variety of traditional and emerging research into the impact of, treatment for and recovery from trauma.

If a thought is causing suffering, it's likely a cognitive distortion.
