Conferencing Events

Throughout the year, the Centre hosts a number of academic and practice-based conferences, bringing together expertise from practitioners, academics and researchers. We run conferences covering a wide range of topics, and these include:

  • ‘Trauma-Informed Care in Practice’: - an annual conference which focuses on developing knowledge and informing clinical practice for practitioners working with people with histories of complex and multiple trauma.
  • ‘Working with Moral Injury in Healthcare Settings’ – a one-day event exploring the conceptual and clinical issues of ‘moral injury’, discussing current evidence and examples of good practice.

Our conferences are also a great opportunity for you to showcase your own research and service development work in the form of a poster.

Research Skills Workshops 

 In May 2022 Centre for Developmental and Complex Trauma launched a series of ten research skills workshops available to clinicians and those with an interest in research within the Charity. The workshops cover a wide range of research methodologies and skills relevant to conducting service development and evaluation projects, as well as research, in clinical settings. The events have a strong ‘learning through practice’ focus to ensure that skills can be translated into the workplace. Full details of each workshop can be found in the brochure below.
