2018 International Conferences
In Jordan and the USA
* Watch for details on our 7th Annual TT Conference
October 18-20, 2018 ~ Amman, Jordan
The landmark Annual T T Conference is held each year in conjunction with:
1) A Disaster Health Care Field Clinic providing comprehensive Psychosocial, Medical, and Dental services to the refugee population
2) An on-site intensive training in our Social Health Care (SHC) training and treatment program in trauma recovery – intended for local trainees assisting refugees. Trainees attend conference workshops as supplements to the training curriculum. As a result, presenters have opportunities to contribute directly to the knowledge base of these highly motivated service providers. Details about the SHC program are at: www.cbiworld.org/training/shc/
3) Center for Healing, Recovery, and Renewal – A comprehensive community mental health based service and intentional supportive community offering a broad range of interrelated activities housed within a positive, stable residential environment preparing refugees for recovery and independence.
* Clinics and Trainings are conducted immediately before or after the conference dates each year.
