Welcome to the New Website!

The Division 56 website has recently been updated to make it easier to find the content that is specific to your needs. The content has been broken into the following domains:

  1. Theory & Practice
  2. Policy
  3. Research
  4. Teaching

Within each domain, you will find the relevant committees that are doing work in these areas, as well as important resources sections that include the work our Presidential Task Forces have completed, as well as other information relevant to the research, practice, and teaching of trauma. If you are aware of any resources not included in the various sections, please submit them to the website editor, Tyson Bailey, for consideration. We have also retained a number of features within the old website, including our archived convention material, webinar series, and the Division newsletter.

Please check back to the site frequently, as we will continue to add new content over the coming months. Each time an update is made, we will send out notices on social media, so like or follow us to ensure you do not miss any of the exciting changes or chances to participate in the conversation!
