Sydney: 1st Australia and New Zealand Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference.
29 March 2017 - 31 March 2017
Assisting recovery from the scars of torture and refugee trauma is a crucial component of successful refugee resettlement. The 1st Australia and New Zealand Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference in Sydney, Australia, 29-31 March 2017, will explore the complementary role and challenges of specialist torture and trauma agencies, health services, settlement services, English and employment programs, education institutions, the community sector and policy makers, in promoting trauma recovery and successful cultural transition and integration in the context of high income Western countries.
Innovative individual and community based refugee trauma recovery interventions will be showcased by presenters from around Australia, New Zealand and the world, in plenary and oral paper presentation sessions, and pre-conference workshops. The unique conference format will also give delegates the opportunity to discuss important issues with expert panels in round table discussions focused around key topics of interest, and hear from people from refugee backgrounds who have rebuilt their lives in a resettlement country. The conference will conclude with a plenary ‘Q&A’ style panel of star national and international experts, policy makers and consumers.
