An International Conference on Innovation in
Therapeutic Approaches with Children, Young
People and Families.
In the brain, the collective actions of individual nerve cells connect in intricate networks to shape behaviour, form and retrieve memories, evoke emotions, react to danger and build relationships with others.
Knowledge about brain-body science has challenged and resourced exciting innovation in the ways that children, young people and adults are supported to recover from the effects of violence, disruption and relational disconnection.
The neurobiology of childhood trauma and attachment is now integral to practice approaches of professionals from education, child protection, mental health, family support, drug and alcohol, police, out of home care and criminal justice services.
In this unique event, the Australian Childhood Foundation has assembled thought leaders in interpersonal neurobiology, trauma and therapy in a conference format that promises to engage, challenge and integrate perspectives about working with children, young people and families.
The conference has three separate components, each offering options for participants to follow their own interests and plan a program that is specific to their learning objectives.
