The Traumatic Stress Studies Division (TSSD) was established in 1991 by Dr. Rachel Yehuda and is based at the Icahn School of Medicine and the James J Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
Our division provides opportunities to participate in clinical research protocols that will help us better understand the underlying biology and recovery of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Over the past two decades, our research has included groundbreaking studies on combat veterans, Holocaust survivors and their offspring, victims of 9/11, sexual assault, and other types of victimization. This research has enabled us to identify important factors that have led directly to an improved understanding of the syndrome.
The Traumatic Stress Studies Division research program based at the James J Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center provides specialized clinical services to veteran trauma survivors who may be struggling with a range of symptoms that include depression, anxiety and PTSD.
