About the program

STARTTS’ Clinical Master Class Evenings are held five times per year and aim to provide an opportunity for clinicians working with refugees to extend their understanding of refugee trauma by inviting expert speakers to present on interesting and practical topics. These presentations are followed by a case study presentation by an experienced STARTTS staff member and a panel discussion.

These events are free and open to anyone who is interested and are particularly suitable to those working in clinical and related settings. They are held at STARTTS’ Carramar office from 6-8pm. Light refreshments are provided. If you can’t make it to Carramar, there is the option of watching the event live over the internet (see below for more details).

The clinical master class evening program began in 2005. Read more about our previous events.

Live internet broadcast

If you can’t make it to Carramar, then you can save on time and petrol by watching the live internet broadcast of these events from your own computer. It is free and you will be able to participate in the panel discussion by sending in your typed questions which are answered live.
