ICISF’s World Congress on Stress, Trauma & Coping is held every other year and attracts approximately 800 participants from across the U.S. and around the World. Over the course of six days (3 days of all-day pre-conference workshops and 2.5 days of the Congress), participants attend general sessions, breakouts, in-depth workshops, lunch discussions, exhibits, posters, special interest meetings and social events. The World Congress has traditionally been held in Baltimore due to the city’s proximity to ICISF headquarters, which enables ICISF to keep registration fees as low as possible.
Attendance is multi-disciplinary, with participants representing the fields of emergency services, public safety, mental health, school administration & counseling, medical, military, clergy, security, business and industry, among others.
