The Pain and Trauma Special Interest Group has issued a resolution condemning torture in any form by IASP members. Read the IASP Declaration on Torture.

The Pain and Trauma Special Interest aims to:

  • Promote the recognition and appropriate treatment of pain resulting from trauma.
  • Promote mutual education and training of healthcare workers who care for survivors of trauma.
  • Promote liaison and exchange of information between pain treatment services and organizations working with survivors of trauma.
  • Foster research on all aspects of pain resulting from trauma.
  • Establish an international forum within the pain field for discussion and action, using knowledge about pain to mitigate the health effects of trauma.
