International Conference on Trauma and Mental Health 2017
Learn from leading international experts on trauma and mental health presenting the latest advances in research, diagnosis and management of PTSD, in Jerusalem 21-23 May 2017.
A major international conference focused on the diagnosis and management of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related conditions will be held in Jerusalem from 21-23 May, 2017.
The International Conference on Trauma and Mental Health 2017 brings together many of the world’s leading trauma and mental health specialists who will present the latest research and outcomes achieved in the areas of trauma, attachment and grief.
Trauma is ubiquitous and is experienced in different forms and with different prevalence rates globally. War, terrorism, torture, natural disasters, road and workplace accidents, domestic violence and child abuse all have far reaching immediate and long term psychological consequences.
The practice of psychologists, psychiatrists, general practitioners, social workers, emergency service personnel and pastoral care workers, who all deal with mental health issues arising from trauma, will benefit from the range of experts presenting.
Israel is well placed to host this conference as it is particularly advanced in its response and treatment to traumatic events. With a high prevalence of PTSD among the local population Israeli specialists bring their experience and expertise to the diverse group of high profile speakers from Australia, Israel, UK and USA.
Amos Oz, acclaimed author, journalist and social observer will deliver the keynote address at the Opening Session and Gala Dinner. Oz will speak on his novel ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ and the Familial Aspects of Depression and Suicide.
The conference is being held under the auspices of Hadassah Australia in association with Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, AUSiMED, Monash and Melbourne Universities and Phoenix Australia.
