Fifth Biennial

International Childhood Trauma Conference

17 August – 22 August 2025
Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre

17 August – 22 August 2025

Our Conference has moved to 2025

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the conference for 12 months.

We know that many of you have been looking forward to attending on the original dates. We want to really thank you for your ongoing interest and enthusiasm for the learning that our conference has offered now for over the past decade.

We are very much committed to bringing you an even greater experience in 2025 with a blend of returning and new speakers, themed presentations, unique panels and broad inclusion of multiple voices and perspectives.

We are pleased to share that the following speakers will be presenting:

  • Rachel Yehuda (Israel)
  • Deb Dana (USA)
  • Ruth Lanius (USA)
  • Lisa Barrett (USA)
  • Cathy Malchiodi (USA)
  • Bethany Brand (USA)
  • Dan Hughes (USA)
  • Jon Baylin (USA)
  • Kim Golding (England)
  • Lou Cozolino (USA)
  • Judy Atkinson (Australia)
  • Arielle Schwartz (USA) + many more to be announced.

As an added incentive, we will be running webinars with many of the speakers to explore their current work and the topics you would like to hear them present at the conference. Watch out for these as they will fill up quickly.

We’ll be sharing more details on how you can access the Super Early Bird Rate in the coming months in our weekly professional emails, but for now, be sure to block out 17 August – 22 August 2025.

Keep up to date by signing up to our weekly newsletter. We’ll bring you updates on the 2025 conference, training opportunities and free resources for your work.
