Treatment for Traumatic Stress

Glenn Saxe, MD

Trauma can have devastating consequences on a child's life-consequences that may not be obvious to parents, teachers, or other caregivers. In his work, Dr. Saxe tries to understand the impact of traumatic events on children and their families, and then help them to recover. He created Trauma Systems Therapy to teach other mental healthcare  professionals how to diagnose and treat children following traumatic events. The program addresses a child's emotional needs and social environment, and how it can be used to successfully treat children throughout the country and around the world.

*Dr. Claudia Lament will give a eulogy for 
Dr. Samuel Abrams before the presentation. 
IPE and PANY mourn the loss of the
Training and Supervising Analyst,
teacher, and former IPE Director. 

Dr. Glenn Saxe is the Arnold Simon Professor and Chair, for the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Saxe is a physician scientist with a focus on child traumatic stress. His work has concerned the identification of risk factors for traumatic stress in acutely traumatized children and innovative methods for conducting risk factor analysis. He is also a developer of Trauma Systems Therapy (TST), a widely used community-based intervention.
