The Trauma Research Foundation and Dr. Bessel van der Kolk are delighted to announce that the 31st Annual Trauma Conference will be happening virtually this year. This is extremely exciting news for all individuals who may have wanted to attend in previous years, but due to distance and/or cost were unable to make it.
You will now have access to the world’s leading experts in trauma from the comfort of your own home. The move to a virtual platform will allow for an experience that still upholds the academic and therapeutic excellence of each previous event, as it continues to explore the interface between our knowledge of the brain, the body, innovative therapies, and dealing with trauma.
This live three day event is happening on May 28th, 29th and 30th, and sessions will be available for later viewing in order to ensure accessibility for all.
Due to the virtual aspect of the conference, we will be able to offer ticket prices at a much lower rate than previous years, with early bird prices available now for the three day conference including the pre-conference workshops and Q&As.
There will be a total of 20 Continuing Education credits awarded on attendance of the 3 days. Individual credits can also be awarded.
