Abstract

Associate editors Christine Courtois, Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, and I are honored to have had the opportunity to have overseen this, the inaugural issue of Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy (PT:TRPP), the official journal the APA Division of Psychological Trauma (56). Many of our colleagues have expressed their enthusiasm for the promise the journal holds to become an influential force in the field of trauma psychology. It is our intention to maximize this potential by employing it to facilitate several objectives. These objectives are discussed in this editorial.
