Event Details - Working With Trauma – Online Symposium

Title: Working With Trauma – Online Symposium
Type of Activity: Online Event
Objective of Course / Workshop:

This year’s PACFA conference on WORKING WITH TRAUMA  was a sell-out. PACFA has decided to open up some of the conference presentations to a wider audience.

PACFA is will hold an Online Symposium on 20 and 21 September 2019 which will include a selectino of high quality presentations and the keynote addresses in webinar format.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed out on a place at the conference, or who could not attend because of distance or cost, to have access to the great professional development material on the theme, WORKING WITH TRAUMA.  There will be seven hours of live interactive webinars featuring the best presentations from the conference, and two recorded keynote addresses from the conference.

The Online Symposium will explore key aspects of trauma practice and research with an emphasis on culturally informed approaches to promoting trauma recovery in Australia today. Practitioners and researchers will present on key aspects of their work and research with trauma.

The Online Symposium will provide opportunities to engage in dialogue with trauma practitioners specialising in a variety of therapy modalities. These conversations will be facilitated in interactive webinars. PACFA warmly invite you to join us online to be a part of the discussion.
