New 2017 ESTD membership rates:
Western European members (including e-journal): 85 Euro
Eastern European members (including e-journal): 50 Euro
Eastern European members (without e-journal): 15 Euro
Student (with documentation) members (including e-journal): 65 Euro


Starting in 2017, ESTD members will receive for free an exciting new trauma and dissociation e-journal, the European Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, published by Elsevier. This is a major step for ESTD as an organization, taken in conjunction with our sister French organization, AFTD (Association Francophone du Trauma et de la Dissociation), but will require an increase in member fees to support it. We worked very hard to keep the increase as low as possible. Western European members will pay 85 Euro in 2017 – an increase of 35 Euro, while Eastern European members will see the membership fee increase to 50 Euro. However, for Easter European countries only, ESTD members may choose not to receive the journal; for this option, the fee will remain 15 Euro annually. New members may join at these rates in November 2016 and remain ESTD members through 2017.

Full Membership of ESTD is open to residents of any country who are professionally occupied with diagnosis, treatment, research or teaching in the field of (chronic) trauma, dissociation and disorders related to chronic traumatization or officially represent an organization in the above mentioned field.
Student Membership is open to above residents who are still in training and have been issued a certificate of registration with a university or college of higher education.
Formal membership will be registered once full payment is received. Payments can be made electronically through Pay pal or other credit card or by cheque or bank transfer.
We strongly recommend paying by bank transfer for countries using the euro, as this is the cheapest option for the organisation.

A renewal of your membership is not necessary. According to Dutch law, your membership is renewed automatically each year.

If you want to terminate your membership, please let us know before December 1st and your membership will end at January 1st.

All members will receive their invoice in February. We sincerely ask you to pay after receiving your invoice, and not before. If you pay without an invoice number it’s hard to register your payment. Moreover, paying after Februari 1st will be much cheaper for the ESTD, because after Februari 1stmost of the members can pay by bank, at very low cost, because of the introduction of the SEPA.

Thank you for your understanding.
