Traumatic experiences across the lifespan often lead to long-term negative consequences on mental health. Recent studies on trauma- and stress-related disorders reveal diverse trajectories of human responses to adverse life experiences. Various mental disorders associated with stress, such as adjustment disorder, prolonged grief, or complex posttraumatic stress disorder have been studied extensively providing novel knowledge, but also opening up new issues in how to better understand, prevent and treat these conditions. The huge global burden of trauma calls for novel approaches to providing trauma treatment for those in need. The September keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Evaldas Kazlauskas, President of the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and Head of the Center for Psychotraumatology at Vilnius University in Lithuania. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion.
