International Trauma Recovery Summit

27th & 28th June 2018 - Waterfront Hall - Belfast
This is a conference with a difference, due to its scale and the ambition to bring about a significantly greater world awareness of trauma, from Belfast, a ‘Trauma City’, now in recovery. Refreshments will be available throughout each day and not just at break times. The seating and facilities for talks and workshops will encourage the free movement of delegates at all times. Areas will be set aside for contemplation, business networking and private meetings. Entertainment will be provided throughout each day. Including Irish dancing and music. Then, just outside the doors, Belfast is abuzzing!
