To all our members and guests:

1)  Under the Resources tab, 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 difficult time, please feel free to share your thoughts via a blog on our site!

2)  Also under the Resources tab, we are building a new tab on our site called "Racism and Trauma", which contains resources around dealing with emotional trauma related to racial injustice.  We will be adding to this tab regularly, so check back often.


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,  we did move our last two spring programs online to comply with recommendations around social distancing.   It remains to be seen whether issues will continue into the fall.  We are prepared to offer all of our 2020-2021 programs virtually if necessary, although our hope is to offer them at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library in Lexington if we can do it safely.  Continue to check our website for details!
