Beyond Resiliency

After receiving feedback from the telephonic presentations offered in a previous column, In the Aftermath, of the Aftermath, of Hurricanes Rita and Katrina, the Academy decided to present this streaming audio file. It reflects the Academy's belief that many people, particularly survivors of traumatic events, are often receptive to listening to the right thing at the right time. The following presentation is less than five minutes in length. The Academy welcomes your thoughts concerning the utilization of this alternative, and hopefully more personal, mechanism of communication.

About The Academy

The American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress® is a multidisciplinary network of professionals who are committed to the advancement of intervention for survivors of trauma. The Academy aims to identify expertise among professionals, across disciplines, and provide meaningful standards for those who work regularly with survivors. The Academy's Traumatic Stress Library and publications provide practical information for survivors of traumatic events and those who care for them.

Today, our international membership includes individuals from over 200 professions in the health-related fields, emergency services, criminal justice, forensics, law, business and education. With Members in every state of the United States and over 55 foreign countries, our association is the largest organization of its kind in the world.

The Academy defines traumatic stress as, “the emotional, cognitive, behavioral, physiological experience of individuals who are exposed to, or who witness, events that overwhelm their coping and problem-solving abilities." Our mission is to increase awareness of the effects of traumatic events and, ultimately, to improve the quality of intervention with survivors.

Traumatic stress has many "faces.” In addition to the devastating effects of large-scale disasters and catastrophes, the Academy is committed to fostering a greater appreciation of the effects of day-to-day traumatic experiences (e.g., chronic illness, accidents, domestic violence and loss). Our aim is to help all victims to become survivors and, ultimately, thrivers.
