Trauma is prevalent in our world and many of the people we work with live with its physical, mental and emotional impacts.

Providing effective and compassionate support requires trauma-informed practice with a cultural and historical understanding of lived experience.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, network and enhance skills!

Join our conference featuring innovative trauma-and violence-informed health promotion and intervention research supporting people with lived experiences of intimate partner violence and/or child maltreatment.
