This Summit Conference is for professionals and volunteers who deal with trauma and its widespread consequences and anyone else with a particular interest in learning about trauma. It draws together experts, both locally and from across the world, and will bring you up to date with the latest statistics, thinking and healing techniques.
Trauma is undoubtedly the ‘next pandemic’ but it is not an illness. It is an injury which can be healed and we want to tell this to as many people as possible. We expect more than 600 delegates to attend from within Ireland, North and South, the United Kingdom and Europe. (A parallel event for up to 2000 members of the general public will take place separately, but at the same time and in the same venue. It is called My Body, Mind & Brain and will have its own website launched before Christmas).
Belfast is one of the ‘Trauma Cities’ of the world. It is hoped that these events will contribute significantly to the healing of transgenerational and legacy issues.
The summit will take place on Wednesday the 27th of June and Thursday the 28th of June 2018 and will combine an exciting mix of keynote talks, presentations and workshops. The program may be subject to some further changes but the workshops are being amended and added to all the time and will have limitations on numbers.
