Trauma Research

Our interventions are grounded in the research of Dr Jennifer Dawson, a clinical psychologist specialising in trauma recovery and the Chief Executive Officer of TraumAid International. Dr Jennifer Dawson completed her PhD entitled “When Fear Remains: The development and Maintenance of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder ” in 2007.

Many who would benefit from this research would struggle to afford access to academic journals. Therefore these papers have been released here online. This research guided the foundation of TraumAid International, a not-for-profit charity organisation that seeks to heal and empower those suffering after large scale disaster, of which Dr Jennifer is the CEO. 

We are committed to ensuring best practice through ongoing research into traumatised populations and culturally-appropriate trauma interventions. For more information, or to discuss opportunities for collaborative research, please contact us at
