Welcome to 2006 with the South African Institute for Traumatic Stress!

2005 was a rewarding year for SAITS, with more than 240 students having been trained in trauma treatment at various levels, ranging from trauma support and early intervention, to advanced trauma treatment. As always, the courses offered an opportunity for practitioners from over 25 organizations to network and offer each other support.
