PACFA Working with Trauma Online Symposium

PACFA’s first ever Online Symposium is coming up fast. Based on select presentations from 2019’s sold-out conference ‘Working with Trauma’ the symposium will take place over two jam-packed days on the 20th and 21st of September. The symposium showcases seven carefully selected speakers whose presentations stood out during the PACFA conference and will transform these presentations into hour-long online interactive webinars.

This format is designed to reach a wider audience who may not have been able to attend the conference for a variety of reasons. With the ease of participating in seven hours of category A CPD from the comfort of your own home this is one event that is not to be missed. Participants will receive an all-access pass to all 7 presentations with the added bonus of the two recorded keynote addresses from the conference– also claimable for category B CPD.

Speakers include:

Dr Judith de Lang who will discuss: Trauma Informed practice to support people with lived experience of trauma.

Madeleine Fogarty & Dr Jelena Zeleskov Djoric will present: A Gestalt Therapy approach to working with trauma.

Dr Ruth Lawson-McConnell on: Working with complex developmental trauma.

Elizabeth A Riley brings us: Trans adolescents’ trauma: Bullies, Blades and Barricades.

Dr Radika Santhanam-Martin looks at: Post-trauma reconstruction with refugee families – is there a role for institutions?

Merle Conyer covers: Climate change trauma – Impacts and therapeutic response.

Finally, introducing Narelle McKenzie, who will be turning her very successful pre-conference workshops into an interactive webinar titled Keeping the body in mind. Narelle will be replacing Ravi Iyer who could no longer make the symposium.
