Aside from hearing from national and international experts in trauma-aware education during keynote addresses, we are also keen to hear from education leaders, practitioners and researchers.

We are keen to hear about trauma-aware thinking and practice in:

  • First Nations education
  • Rural and remote education
  • Higher education
  • Alternative education (including Youth Detention Centres)
  • Education systems

We are keen for individuals or teams to share successful trauma-aware models that work for:

  • Early childhood education and care
  • Primary schooling
  • Secondary schooling
  • Alternative settings
  • Higher education

We are also interested in:

  • Supporting staff and workforce well-being
  • Animal-assisted support for trauma-impacted learners
  • Messages from trauma survivors to education providers
  • Hearing the latest from national and international research
  • Higher Degrees Research projects 
  • Progressing systemic trauma-aware education in states and territories across Australia

We have limited spots available for presentations over the three days of our conference. 

There are three options for presentations. Please note that all research presentations will be 20-minutes.
