First Trauma Conference

In September 2002 at the celebration of the tenth Anniversary of the cooperation between the MAD-Foundation and the Clinica de Psihiatrie of the Medical University and the Neuropsychiatric Children Clinic in Craiova a conference was organized about Psychotrauma. Well known speakers from Holland (Wybrand Op den Velde, Petra Aarts and Hans Hovens) and Great Britain/Turkey (Metin Basoglu) discussed the psychological consequences of man made disasters (war, persecution, torture, manslaughter, rape, violence in the family, traffic accidents) and natural disasters (earthquake, flooding).

The Proceedings of the Psychotrauma Conference -(ed. Martin Willems and Ineke Jungschleger; ISBN 973-8354-68-4, Craiova, Editura Medicala Universitara, 2003)- has an appendix with databases, Journals and Internet Links.
