Fall 2016 Washington Conference on Trauma: Listening to Trauma: Insights and Actions

The George Washington University is happy to be hosting the second Washington Conference on Trauma this fall. This multi-disciplinary conference will feature a broad range of presenters and formats, addressing the effects of severe psychological trauma on individuals and society.
Listening to Trauma:
Insights and Actions
Thursday, October 20th
Saturday, October 22nd 2016
Location: The George Washington University 
Marvin Center
Clinicians, academics and researchers will share knowledge and experience through plenary talks, paper panels, small group roundtables (including clinical roundtables for mental health professionals) and possible online study groups made available before and after the conference.
The study of trauma, Judith Herman points out, has a history of “episodic amnesia.” Knowledge gained is periodically forgotten and must be persistently reclaimed. After almost 15 years of combat in the Middle East and of rising attention to a broad range of stressful events, American culture, its media, academics and clinicians have become increasingly responsive to the diverse nature and complexity of traumatic experience.
