ESTSS seeks to ensure that clinical research and policy practices in the field of psychotraumatology are informed by evidence systematically gathered and publicly scrutinised. They also aim to ensure continued prominence is given to all aspects of traumatic stress and its many repercussions while seeking to promote networking between individuals and organizations within the field of psychotraumatology. The main objectives of ESTSS, contained within the ESTSS mission statement, are:
- To increase and disseminate knowledge of traumatic stress based on good science.
- To identify cross European issues, such as differences in training and certification.
- To stimulate cross European training for different levels of certification.
- To stimulate and help to set up local societies in different European countries.
- To help establish European wide research on traumatic stress.
- To focus on European issues relating to traumatic stress, e.g. disaster response, uniform services, child abuse etc.
- To liaise with pan-European and international organizations/bodies.
