Organised  by Complex Trauma Therapists' Network in the UK (CTTN) and Complex Trauma Institute (CTI)

in collaboration with the University of York

Welcome

Regrettably, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we were unable to go ahead with our 'International & Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Complex Trauma and its Treatment' in April. Our mission is to support professionals who work with complex trauma and this world-wide crisis has already affected both professionals and clients in this field of work. Therefore, to continue our work in the safest way possible and share our experience, knowledge and expertise we have decided to host our first Virtual Conference on the 4th of July (2020). 
We understand that some of you are still adapting to new ways of working online and that there are challenges ahead. We appreciate the differences between meeting face to face and online and feel a loss at not being able to welcome you to our event in person. Having said this, we also hope that the virtual conference will have its opportunities and benefits by being more adaptable to our current situations and that you can join us from your homes. 
 
Most therapists have faced the decision of adapting to the Covid-19 outbreak and moved their work to online platforms. This has presented with many challenges, adjustment and debates but it has also brought many benefits and new opportunities. Our priority is to support professionals to work effectively and safely. Therefore, we have adapted some of our conference presentations to focus on shifting our work online. 
The presentations are facilitated by UK-based and International professionals in the field of complex trauma. We will have clinicians sharing their experience from Germany, Canada, Ireland and the UK. 
You will be able to access the below presentations at any time for up to a month. This account will expire on the 4th of August. We hope you find our presentations informative, useful and reflective. Please contact us for any further questions or to get in touch with our presenters.
