Trauma Summit 2020

Trauma Summit 2020

Welcome to the website of the International Trauma Summit, taking place in Belfast on the 22nd and 23rd of June 2020. 


Belfast has a tragic legacy of trauma from the Troubles. Trauma goes down the generations and affects the whole family. As a result, we have the highest suicide rate in the UK and the worst mental health statistics. Trauma also affects a great many other people and in many different waysleading to illness, addictions, depression, rage and aggression. 


This Summit Conference is for professionals who deal with trauma and its consequences and anyone else with a particular interest in learning about trauma. It draws together experts from across the world and will bring you up to date with the latest statistics, thinking and healing techniques.
