Experts from around the world are coming together to share good practice and the latest evidence in trauma diagnoses and interventions, later this year.

The 3rd International Trauma Informed Care (TIC2022) In Practice - Trauma frameworks: Evidence base and treatments is taking place on Tuesday, November 29, 2022.

Professor Patricia Kerig, Clinical Psychologist from the University of Utah, Professor Ad de Jongh, from the Department of Oral Public Health and Professor Julian D. Ford, who is Professor of Psychiatry and Law at the University of Connecticut have been confirmed to present at the event.

They will be joined by Dr Eva Heim Associate Professor of Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lausanne, Dr Grace W. K. Ho, Assistant Professor from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Nursing, Dr Ruby Charak, PhD Associate Professor from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Dr Joseph Spinazzola PhD, Executive director of the Foundation Trust in Melrose, Professor Tine K. Jensen, from the University of Oslo and Professor Cornelius Katona, Medical and Research Director of the Helen Bamber Foundation.

The agenda for the live, online event has been designed for registered practitioners who are engaged in direct clinical practice in the area of trauma care. This includes psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health and/or learning disability nurses and professionals working in prison settings. Health leaders and service leaders, who are involved in policy, may also wish to attend.

The event is being hosted by The Centre for Developmental and Complex Trauma, (CDCT),

The British Psychological Society (Crisis, Disaster and Trauma section) and the Academic Centre, St Andrew’s Healthcare.

Dr Deborah Morris, Director of the CDCT, said: “Trauma frameworks continue to grow in prominence and impact. During a period of significant expansion for trauma diagnoses and interventions, it is important that clinicians and academics develop clinical practice approaches that work for the heterogeneous populations and nature of trauma needs.

“TIC2022 brings together global experts to offer a comprehensive clinically focused programme to provide clinicians and academics with the latest evidence and guidance to inform clinical practice and service development for the betterment of service users and healthcare workers.”

Attendees are being invited to submit conference posters ahead of the event, which focus on the following key themes:

  • Marginalised populations that are typically minimised in the trauma literature
  • Co-produced examples of care, service evaluation, service development or research projects
  • Evaluations of assessment or intervention approaches, especially relating to under researched populations
  • Exploring specific types of trauma, including developmental, PTSD, Complex PTSD and developmental trauma
  • Trauma support for health professionals, informal carers and familial systems who support people with trauma needs

Dr Morris added: “As per last year’s conference there will be a BPS trauma section sponsored award for the best conference poster, judged by the #TIC2022 conference scientific committee. 

“For aspiring psychologists and students this is very much worth pursuing to add quality to your CV’s.  There are two categories for awards. The first will be to early career presenters (unregistered researchers / clinicians such as students and assistant psychologists) and a second for registered clinicians and established researchers.”
