Welcome to the National Centre of Psychotraumatology


The Danish National Centre for Psychotraumatology is a research unit that is part of a large international network. It is led by Professor Ask Elklit, who has researched in psychotraumatology for 25 years and published a long line of papers. The centre is part of the Institute of Psychology at the University of Southern Denmark located in Odense.


On this page, you can find literature of the highest quality on subjects such as PTSD, sexual abuse, refugees, robberies and many others – all relating to psychotraumatology.


We make different validation tests, evaluations and reports of various centres in Denmark, including the Centre for Sexual Abuse and the Crisis Centre.
