The science of the study of trauma and stress has accelerated as never before, due to increased recognition of the need, greater capabilities for the research, and expanding knowledge. The increased understanding of underlying mechanisms of psychopathology may lead to better diagnostics that are biologically based and to improving the development of novel therapeutics, especially in device-based neurotherapeutics. Similarly, a greater understanding of the neurobiology of trauma- and stressor-related disorders is shifting its nosology towards a dimensional rather than categorical approach. While the acceleration of scientific discovery is exciting, much more is still needed to address the global burden of trauma and stress across all age groups. While history suggests that trauma and stressors surely lie ahead for our society, it also reminds us that our knowledge, understanding, and hope will continue to foster advances for those who need care.
