The Academy is a multidisciplinary network of professionals who are committed to the advancement of intervention for survivors of trauma. The Academy aims to identify expertise among professionals, across disciplines, and to provide meaningful standards to those who work regularly with survivors. Fellow is the highest honor the Academy can bestow on a member. This designation is awarded to Diplomates who have made significant contributions to the field and to the academy. Dr. Martin will be featured in the Academy's November publication.
