Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D), the invisible injury.
The National Register of Advanced Hypnotherapists along with the Swindon PTSD working group is pleased to be hosting a one day conference on Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) to be held in Swindon at the Marriott hotel, on the 1 st of August 2008.
If you work with PTSD or would like to know more about the subject then this is an ideal conference for you. The aim of the conference is to promote a wider awareness and understanding of PTSD and its affects on those suffering from the condition, and, what can be done to help sufferers.
The conference is non profit making/non political. Any monies raised, after expenses, will be donated to PTSD related charities/organisations.
We are pleased to have an impressive line up of experts who will be talking on the day. The conference is also being supported by a wide range of people and organisations. The mayor of Swindon will be in attendance, and Swindon MP Anne Snelgrove will be delivering the keynote speech, referring to the government's position on helping veterans.
The day will be split into two parts: The daytime is an open conference where the attendees will mainly be professionals with an interest in PTSD. Dress code: Smart Casual.
In the evening there will be a Dinner & Cabaret. This event will be open to anybody who attended the day time conference, (and partners), and we also hope to attract a wider range of people who may not have attended the conference. Dress code: Lounge Suit. Miniature medals may be worn.
Note: Please advise any dietary requirements at time of booking
