Hope everyone’s year is off to healthy and productive start! To begin, I would like to thank Dr. Beth Rom-Rhymer for her poise, diligence, and leadership during her tenure as president. Her guidance with navigating the fallout from the Hoffman Report, as well as the many other initiatives she advanced certainly captures the essence of her hard work and commitment to Division 56 and the trauma survivors we help.
I’d also like to formally welcome Dr. Joan Cook as president of Division 56. In her first few short months as president, she has already put together several task forces, some of which are outlined in this publication. I encourage each of you to check them out, and become familiar with Dr. Cook’s initiatives as well as the accomplished clinicians and researchers selected to be at the helm.
We feel this is a really exciting issue, as it contains articles on diversity issues, measuring trauma informed care, and applied practice, alongside webinar information, a memorial, book review, a stimulating interview by our international committee, and news/announcements about the superb work of our fine members. And, of course, please get to know our very own Dr. Tyson Bailey in the Who’s Who section! Enjoy!
All the Best,
Bryan T. Reuther
