The Traumatic Psychology Division forms one of the fifty six American Psychological Divisions. Traumatic Psychology Division under APA which started in the year 2006 is new. This division focuses on trauma, stress and post traumatic stress resulting from rape, war, child sexual and physical aggression, refugees, prisoners of war, society violence, sexual abuse, and work stress.
Traumatic division is a formation of researchers, clinicians, educators and public policy experts whose concern for setting this division arose from the neglect and misunderstanding of trauma survivors. In addition, trauma is related to many disorders and takes up quite a large center of concern in the national policy agenda due to the increase of war and terrorism.
The need to research and offer information for better understanding and treatment of trauma and related stress disorders compels Trauma Psychology Division to provide scientific research, professional and public education, support of collegiate professional trauma stress related activities, training, journal publications, mentoring projects, emergency preparedness, health service delivery and involvement in funding in support from federal centers either private or public for the good of the public health.
“Behavioral Interventions in Schools: Evidence- Based Positive Strategies” is a book on the APA books homepage online. Akin- Little, Little, Bray, and Kehle (2009), in this book, are concerned with classroom behavior problems and the response from teachers, administrators and the public in dealing with these problems. They emphasize on how best behavioral evaluation, measurement of treatment uprightness and reaction, and how to endorse simplification and preservation of learned constructive behaviors.
The overall approach is on giving sound primary, secondary and tertiary prevention strategies to the concerned parties in school management and administration.
