This unique event will be delivered in Perth and Sydney by Professor David Pilgrim straight from the UK. David Pilgrim Honorary Professor of Health and Social Policy, University of Liverpool and Visiting Professor of Clinical Psychology University Southampton.

This one day workshop presents robust research from biology, neuroscience, and trauma studies, and marries them with social science and psychology to explore the dynamics of power, the threats power imposes, our responses to those threats and the meaning we, as individuals, and as a society have made of those responses.

This framework complements and extends existing models to foster a holistic understanding of people's thoughts, feelings, behaviours and actions. This evidence suggests that if we know enough about people’s relationships, social situations, life stories, and their past and current struggles, including trauma and adverse life events, then we can make sense of these experiences. And that if we also think about people’s
strengths and supports, we may be able to come up with new ways forward. The Power Threat Meaning Framework supports the acknowledgement of prior and ongoing trauma including working towards culturally safer environments.

Registration Fee is $385 and includes a complimentary copy of The Power Threat Meaning Framework Overview (138 pages). Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is included in the cost. Present your registration ticket on the day to collect your complimentary copy.
