Current research and practical experience show more and more clearly that babies and young children are particularly vulnerable to traumatic experiences. The younger the children are, the more dramatic the effects can be later in life. This applies in particular to intensive care experiences, longer stays in hospital and the resulting separation from parents. Experiences of abuse and neglect also leave serious traces in the development of children into adulthood.
In order to be able to act in a professional way in early childhood, intensive research and the development of age-appropriate treatment concepts are needed. In this conference, current international research results will be presented. In addition, we want to present and discuss existing treatment approaches in the medical, psycho-therapeutic and socio-pedagogical fields of work. The focus is on the first year of life.
To offer you a flexible and attractive congress experience, we will organise the congress hybrid: in presence in Augsburg and the plenary congress on 16th and 17th May 2025 via livestream. Lectures of the plenary congress will be translated simultaneous German – English.
For a rethink and a change in the training culture of medical and therapeutical professions, we run the conference without sponsorship and industry exhibition!
We are looking forward to exciting national and international experts, practical workshops and a wide-ranging congress programme and hope to meet you soon in Augsburg / Bavaria.
A warm welcome to our congress!
