We are excited to announce that our (much anticipated) next conference, will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September, 2022.

This conference will explore the issues of complex childhood trauma and the need for trauma-aware practice in schools and early childhood education and care.

We are holding this next event on a weekend, to make it easier for our colleagues working in rural and remote areas to attend.

We are actively working towards making this next event bigger and better than ever and really look forward to having the opportunity to network, listen to great speakers and share great practice again, and (of course) to enjoy all that beautiful South Bank has to offer.
