Victims of traumatic events often face many ongoing challenges in their daily lives. Treating trauma-related mental health disorders, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), while managing ongoing stressors is clinical challenge. Furthermore, current national and international events can serve as an unending source of ongoing stress for these individuals. Exposure to such events can compound already difficult situations and make treatment complex. The appropriate care requires expertise in assessing traumatic events, trauma-related psychopathology, knowledge of evidence-based practices for trauma-related psychopathology, and how to integrate all of this information during treatment.
This workshop will provide an overview on best practices to assessing trauma exposure, trends of the use of the term “trauma” and how to define a traumatic event, evidence based practices for trauma-related disorders, and how to expand treatment beyond the therapy room.

Dr. Matthew Price, a leading expert in traumatic stress, is the inaugural George W. Albee Green & Gold Professor of Psychological Science at the University of Vermont, the highest honor UVM faculty can receive.
Since joining the UVM faculty in 2013, Dr. Price has received over $1.2 million dollars in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, the American Psychological Association, and local foundations. His research carries forward George Albee’s commitment to equity, prevention, and social justice in delivering mental health care to underserved populations.
The goal of Dr. Price’s work is to develop interventions for underserved populations that are disproportionately at risk for chronic psychopathology after a traumatic event. He is at the forefront of using technology-based clinical interventions, including telehealth, web-based interventions, mobile health applications, remote sensors, and virtual reality. His transdisciplinary approach—he routinely partners with engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians—combined with his sophisticated use of statistics and quantitative measures, places him at the cutting edge of research in his field.
Dr. Price's contributions have been valuable in moving the field forward. Much of his work is focused on building digital tools that can help connect trauma victims with needed resources and provide them with new tools to prevent their symptoms from becoming unmanageable; in essence, helping them build a local community to help them with their trauma.
Dr. Price has published over 90 peer-reviewed publications in high-impact journals, has co-authored a text book and attendant student study guides, regularly presents at national and international conferences, and is frequently an invited speaker at professional conferences. He is a peer reviewer for 30 scientific journals, numerous grant proposals, and professional meetings, including for the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies meetings. In addition, Dr. Price is on the editorial board for the Journal of Traumatic Stress and the European Journal of Psychotraumatology.
Dr. Price is a former associate chair of the institutional review board at the University of Vermont and is currently the Director of Clinical Training for the doctoral program at the University of Vermont. Dr. Price is also a licensed clinical psychologist and supervises future psychologists as part of his work.
