To all our members and guests:  We've added a special section to our website which provides professional and client resources related to COVID-19.  In addition, throughout the site you will find information on how the global pandemic is impacting our schedule of events for the remainder of this year.  Finally, during this diffuclt time, please feel free to share your thoughts via a blog on our site!


The New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation (NESTTD) is devoted to providing education, training, and resources on the effective treatment of psychological trauma, complex trauma and dissociation.

Founded in 1984, NESTTD is incorporated as a nonprofit organization. The society has its headquarters in Massachusetts and has members from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Special Notice regarding the impact of COVID-19 on our programs:  While we understand that one of the greatest benefits our organization provides is the ability to network with eachother in person, during this time of necessary social distancing we are working to move two remaining programs for this year online.  The Toni Herbine-Blank All-Day program scheduled for Saturday, April 4 will be offered via a Zoom webinar, and a Friday Afternoon Series event with Joanne Twombly on Friday, April 24 will also take place on a web platform.  Continue to check our website for details!

We do understand that virtual learning is not for everyone.   If you already registered for one or both of these events and prefer NOT to participate in the virtual programs for any reason, just let us know and we'll be happy to refund your payment in full.
