The conference theme – Public Issues, Private Trauma – reflects the increasing public recognition of issues such as childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, refugee and asylum seeker trauma, and the moral conflicts facing military personnel on deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Scientific Committee has brought together a range of perspectives on trauma from four diverse keynote speakers, experts in family violence, the intergenerational effects of trauma, treatment of moral injury, and childhood sexual abuse.
ACOTS2016 is committed to connecting with and supporting the future leaders of trauma research and intervention. Accordingly, we have prepared an exceptional program for all student attendees in addition to the general program.
