The ChildTrauma Academy and Hull Services jointly present

June 8 – 10, 2016 

at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta – Canada

We invite you to join us for a gathering of professionals from across multiple disciplines for this three-day event that will feature innovations in research, clinical practice and education in all areas related to maltreatment and trauma.  While the focus will be on the Neurosequential Model (NMT), other complementing perspectives and practices will be presented.

Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., Senior Fellow of The ChildTrauma Academy, will present and participants will choose from a variety of presentations – both traditional and interactive – related to Early Childhood, Policy/Juvenile Justice, Education, Mental Health, Child Welfare and more.

Presenters will also include: Stuart Ablon, Sandra Bloom, Kristie Brandt, Sheldon Kennedy, Frank MacMaster, Michael Ungar and other professionals.

The Symposium will also build in generous time and opportunity for building the NMT community through informal and spontaneous conversations.  We encourage anyone familiar with the Neurosequential Model to attend.
