Speaker information

Dr Catherine Chamberlain, Senior Research Fellow, La Trobe University, Australia

This presentation will discuss a current scoping review of the evidence to support development of screening/diagnostic tools and effective strategies during the perinatal period to identify and support parents who have experienced complex trauma. It focuses on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents, showing that trauma can have profound and ongoing impacts on development and physical, social and emotional wellbeing. The long-lasting relational effects can impede the capacity of parents to nurture and care for their children, leading to ‘intergenerational cycles’ of trauma.
