Kota Samarahan, 4th November 2015: An Inaugural Lecture by Prof Dr Siti Raudzah Ghazali entitled Surviving Childhood Trauma: a story between you and me was held on November 4th, 2015 at Pusat Islam Tun Abang Sallehuddin (PITAS), Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, where she discussed the area of psychological trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and findings from her research. 
Topics were illustrated by real-life cases of childhood trauma as narrated by her patients, students and research participants during her career as a clinical psychologist. 
Since the 2004 Asian Tsunami resulted in the most devastating natural disaster in Malaysian history, the need for studies on psychological trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has become apparent.  
UNIMAS Professor Dr Siti Raudzah Ghazali, with teams of European and local researchers, has led pioneering research into PTSD and psychological trauma among the Malaysian population.  Beginning with survivors of the 2004 Tsunami in Kedah, Dr Siti Raudzah has turned to lifetime traumatic exposure, especially with regard to adolescent and Sarawakian populations.  
Findings from her tsunami research indicate high prevalence of PTSD symptoms even four years after the tsunami. 
Her most recent study among Sarawakian adolescents found that 83% of the participants reported having at least one traumatic event in their lifetime, putting them at risk for PTSD.
