Thank you for joining us at the Child Trauma Conference 2019!

The inaugural Child Trauma Conference, themed ‘Prevention to Recovery’ was held on 3–5 April at Academia, SGH Campus in Singapore. It was our pleasure to welcome over 450 participants to the meeting and we were privileged that our Guest of Honour, Madam Halimah Yacob, President of Singapore graciously joined us for this momentous occasion. Throughout the 2-day programme as well as the pre-conference workshops, delegates had the opportunity to learn about recent advancements and best practice models for child trauma from international experts as well as Singapore-based mental health professionals. We hope that you found the Child Trauma Conference 2019 to be both informative and engaging and that the learnings from the conference will help strengthen psychosocial intervention and support for vulnerable children in Singapore.


Thank you for your enthusiastic participation and contributions throughout the Child Trauma Conference 2019 and we look forward to your continued support towards our future conferences.
