Now Accepting Abstract Submissions and Registration! Conference Date: October 13-15 at the Joy Burns Center, University of Denver.
This conference is co-hosted by the Graduate School of Professional Psychology’s International Disaster Psychology Program at the University of Denver, and the Josef Korbel School of International Studies’ Conflict Resolution Institute at the University of Denver.
The conference committee is seeking submissions on the following central themes: Neurobiology of Trauma and Relationships, Social Cohesion and Attachment, and Empathy and Social Perspective Taking. A particular focus will be on how the systems approach allows us to cross levels and boundaries from the individual to society, taking into account the multiple stories at play in the spaces inhabited by both trauma and peacebuilding practitioners.
Additional themes of interest include: Crossing Levels and Boundaries, The Challenges to Systemic Approaches, Past Successes and Failures, International and Domestic Contexts, The Social Construction of Peace and Trauma Narratives, Police-Community Relations, Individual and Societal Functioning Post-Trauma, and Revisiting Assumptions about Informed Field Practice.
