The Global Collaboration on Traumatic Stress emphasizes the importance to bring together trainees, graduate students, medical residents or post-docs across the world to work together on topic of global importance. Students are the future!
Therefore we aim to have students actively involved in the global collaboration, on any theme.
Student projects are projects run by students. Needless to say, students are also very welcome to participate in other projects as well. Check out the different themes and topics.
Current student projects can be found below. If you have ideas or suggestions please email Krithika Prakash.
Bring together a team of student researchers across the world with the goal of understanding the quality of culturally sensitive trauma training provided to them, and answer the following questions: ...
2. Paper in a Day Projects (PIAD)
For early career researchers there is a unique opportunity to collaborate with international colleagues on existing data and to write a manuscript to be submitted for publication ‘in a day’.
Gender Differences in DSM-5 PTSD Symptom Clusters: A Network Analysis
Project leaders: Anke Witteveen & Mirjam van Zuiden
A successful Paper in a Day project was held at ISTSS in Los Angeles on November 1st 2023 and embodied global collaboration and FAIR data. Early career researchers from around the world collaborated to conduct network analyses using data made available by one of the PIAD leaders’ research project on early prevention of PTSD after trauma. The group included 7 participants from Singapore, Norway, Ghana, and the United States and two supervisors from the Netherlands.
Data from the 2-ASAP study in the Netherlands, provided the starting point for interesting new work to examine gender impact of trauma exposure search paper on differences in early post-trauma PTSD symptom network structures between women and men.

An Exploration of Trauma-Related Symptoms and Symptom Patterns Across the World
Project leaders: Hope Christie & Anke de Haan
Using openly available data from the Global Collaboration’s Global Psychotrauma Screen project.
A Qualitative Analysis of the role of PTSD and PTG in Family Experiences of having a relative in Vegetative and Minimally Conscious States
Project leaders: Anna Denejkina and Yaara Sadeh
Using accessible multi-study data from the Child Trauma Data Archives project (part of the FAIR Data theme).
Two successful Paper in a Day projects embodied global collaboration and FAIR data in action at ISTSS in Atlanta. Early career researchers and trainees from around the world collaborated to conduct novel analyses using accessible data resources made available through the Global Collaboration and its projects. The two project groups included 17 participants from 10 countries (Australia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Israel, Korea, Mongolia, the Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, and United States).
In both projects, easily accessible data resources, from studies conducted in multiple countries, provided the starting point for interesting new work to examine the impact of trauma exposure:
A manuscript from each project has been submitted for publication.
Join the student committee
We, at the Global Collaboration, are interested in recruiting student leaders from various countries who will have a chance to conduct research and collaborate with other students and faculty in conducting research on topics of global importance.
We are looking to create a student committee who will act as a liaison between students and the GC-TS steering committee and oversee all student projects.
If you are interested in being part of this committee, please email Krithika Prakash.
Please spread the news about this initiative to students who you believe might be a good fit for the committee. If you have any further questions or concerns, please reach out to Krithika Prakash firstname.lastname@example.org
