Clinicians, academics and researchers will share knowledge and experience through plenary talks, paper panels, small group roundtables (including clinical roundtables for mental health professionals) and possible online study groups made available before and after the conference.

The study of trauma, Judith Herman points out, has a history of “episodic amnesia.” Knowledge gained is periodically forgotten and must be persistently reclaimed. After almost 15 years of combat in the Middle East and of rising attention to a broad range of stressful events, American culture, its media, academics and clinicians have become increasingly responsive to the diverse nature and complexity of traumatic experience.

Our second Washington Conference on Trauma seeks to recover and advance an understanding of traumatic experience through interdisciplinary explorations. Our presenters include scholars and clinicians from psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, literature, history, political science, journalism, public policy, linguistics and other disciplines, who will offer their multiple approaches and skill-sets in an effort to develop mutually informative insights on the nature and management of psychological trauma.
