An initiative of Hadassah Australia and supported by the Phoenix Australia Centre for Post-Traumatic Health, this conference follows the successful, inaugural International Conference on Trauma and Mental Health, which took place in Jerusalem in 2017 and was attended by 320 delegates from 16 countries.
The focus of this second conference will be challenges and innovations when dealing with the impact of trauma and adversity – particularly in the form of PTSD and as it relates to people living in long-term conflict.
Sub themes are consequences of living in long-term conflict zones and innovations in prevention and intervention in mental health consequences of trauma.
There will be opportunity for practitioners, researchers, service developers and providers to hear from internationally regarded experts in the field, including Sir Prof Simon Wessely (UK), Prof Barbara Rothbaum (USA), Prof Tine Jensen (Norway) and Prof Richard Bryant (Australia).
