"The Academy has brought together the best and the brightest to work on better understanding of what it is that occurs during traumatic stress and how to advance clinical applications."

The Academy is multidisciplinary and facilitates different professions coming together under one umbrella. I think that's a great virtue. The cross-pollination that comes from that kid of interaction can only begin to generate a deeper understanding of the phenomemon of traumatic stress as it affects victims and survivors of trauma ... the Academy, with its diverse and international membership, provides a forum for education, training, publication and consultation.
