The Danish Center of Psychotraumatology was founded in 2009 and is a continuation of a research unit from the Institute of Psychology at Aarhus University. Psychotraumatology and health psychology has become the two main pillars in this new department at The Southern University of Denmark. We have the largest expertise of psychotraumatology in the country and are an international center at the forefront of research on acute stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and complex PTSD.
Knowledge regarding trauma related disorders are important to be able to help people right away and to help reduce chronic disorders. Our mission is to provide a scientific foundation to improve the quality of life of people with trauma-induced mental disorders, and to contribute to the reduction of the prevalence of trauma-induced disorders.
