3rd Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference

9-11 October 2023 | Adelaide

On behalf of the Forum of Australian Services to Survivors of Torture and Trauma we are delighted to invite you to the 3rd Australia and New Zealand Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference, “Holding Hope in an Uncertain World”.

South Australia is proud to be hosting this significant event. We are fortunate to have attracted many distinguished national and international speakers who are leaders in the field of human rights and refugee trauma recovery. Our exciting program offers participants many opportunities to listen, to learn and to discuss the innovations in practice that enable people from refugee backgrounds to recover from trauma, to consider how we sustain support to people and communities impacted by torture and its impacts, and to cast a critical eye over the issue of human rights in the current socio-political context.

We hope you enjoy the workshops, sessions and panels, as well as find time for the social occasions and opportunities to catch up with colleagues and friends from Australia and around the world.

We look forward to meeting you in Adelaide in 2023.

The Forum of Australian Services for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (FASSTT) is a national network of eight specialist torture and trauma rehabilitation services. FASSTT member agencies respond to the needs of survivors of torture and trauma who have come to Australia as refugees or humanitarian entrants, often bringing with them the legacy of significant human rights violations which occurred in both their country of origin and during their flight to safety.

FASSTT member agencies provide specialist “wrap around” psychosocial counselling and support to individuals, families and communities while also working to build the skills and capabilities of other services. As a network FASSTT aims to provide a coherent voice to government in policy development and in national and international conversations about the needs of survivors.
