14th Hawai'i International Summit on Preventing, Assessing & Treating Trauma Across the Lifespan




The 14th Hawai`i International Summit brings together the latest research on prevention, assessment, and intervention techniques concerning various aspects of trauma and maltreatment across the lifespan as well as the long-term effects if untreated. Plenary and breakout sessions will discuss various types of child, adolescent and adult trauma, the dynamics of maltreatment and trauma at home or in the community, and their psychological, behavioral and neurodevelopmental effects. Nationally and internationally recognized presenters and local practitioners assemble to discuss the latest research, assessment methods, interventions, and prevention strategies for those who have been traumatized, abused, and/ or victimized. Application of current research information and practical techniques is emphasized throughout this Summit.

The Pre-Summit and Summit is approved to offer up to 28.0 hours of continuing education for psychologists, counselors, marriage & family therapists, social workers, attorneys, and substance abuse counselors. Additional CE accreditations may be available – due to accreditation procedures, we are prohibited from advertising prior to approval. CE credits approved by California agencies are accepted in most states. Different sessions meet many licensure requirements for continuing education credits for child abuse, domestic violence, ethics, aging, substance abuse, child custody, domestic violence offender treatment, and child sexual abuse. Much, if not all, of your annual requirements for continuing education can be obtained at this Summit.
