In response to COVID-19, we are rescheduling…
After careful consideration and in response to the continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Fourth International Childhood Trauma Conference.
Connection and Healing
Our International Childhood Trauma Conferences are incredible week-long events for professionals who work with people affected by trauma associated with abuse, violence and relational disruption. Delegates come to hear from world experts on neuroscience, trauma, attachment and therapeutic intervention. They are also an important opportunity for local practitioners, researchers and policy makers to share and learn from each other. More than 10 000 delegates have participated over the past three conferences.
to Learn and Participate
A unique opportunity to spend a full day with world leading thinkers, researchers and practitioners. Gain insights and hands on practical skills for your work with individuals who have experienced trauma.
Two full days of concurrent presentations from the full speaker lineup of over twenty international and Australian trauma experts. Choose who you want to see and create a tailored learning experience that meets your specific needs and interests.
The middle day of the Conference brings the opportunity for you to submit an abstract and present your own work to your peers from around the globe. Be part of the conference as a speaker and showcase the way you are making a difference.
Meet and make new connections at network events on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Enjoy refreshments in a social setting to connect with colleagues from Australia and around the world.
The Australian Childhood Foundation acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians and owners of this land and waters. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and to the children who are their leaders of tomorrow. We acknowledge their history and living culture and the many thousands of years in which they have raised their children to be safe and strong.
