This conference will bring together leading researchers and clinicians from around the world to strengthen existing collaborations and forge new ones on topics of global importance related to traumatic stress. In addition to providing state-of-the-art presentations on traumatic stress across the life course, the hybrid format conference provides an excellent opportunity for South African and other African researchers and clinicians working in traumatic stress or related fields to establish long-term partnerships with experts and institutions across the globe. From a capacity-building standpoint, the conference will support young researchers, including master’s and doctoral students, to learn from and network with international experts, share their own expertise, and identify opportunities for professional development with collaborating groups. In addition, the GC-TS Steering Committee and the wider community of conference attendees will have the opportunity to develop and shape the strategic plan to guide the next 5 years of activity in this Global Collaboration.
