Traumatic Stress Research Consortium
Research conducted at the Kinsey Institute, Indiana University
Traumatic Stress Research Consortium (TSRC)
The Traumatic Stress Research Consortium is a research initiative at Indiana University. The research orientation of the consortium emerges from the Polyvagal Theory which explains how threat can retune the autonomic nervous system into states of defense that disrupt physical health, mental wellbeing, and social relationships.
KI-TSRC's research mission:
To witness and document the consequences of trauma
To understand the neurophysiological mechanisms that are disrupted by trauma
To provide insights and tools for clinicians and clients
To assess the effectiveness of interventions
We are seeking clinicians who are interested in joining this important project. We are assembling a worldwide group of approximately 1,000 clinicians who specialize in working with trauma, and who will identify clients from their clinical caseloads to participate in consortium studies. Our goals are to learn about the experiences of trauma survivors and the clinicians who work with them.
How do I become a participating clinician?
