5th Australian Postvention Conference

This conference, at the University of South Wales, brings together those bereaved by suicide; trauma victims and survivors, indigenous, military personnel, emergency services and individuals/organisations working the field of suicide bereavement, trauma and loss.

On Saturday, 25th March 2017, a separate stream is dedicated to those bereaved by suicide, trauma victims and survivors. A healing and remembrance service will also be held at the conclusion of that day. The healing and remembrance service provides an opportunity for individuals, families, friends and conference delegates to come together in helping the bereaved through their pain of grief.

The Hope and Healing "Surviving the Impact of Suicide" Conference provides a wonderful opportunity for delegates throughout Australia and New Zealand and the South Pacific to network and share together their experience and knowledge.

We are privileged to have international guests and invited Australian speakers who are well known in Australia and internationally for their research and expertise in postvention, trauma and bereavement.

TRIPLE i in Suicidology Conference
Piran, Slovenia

TRIPLE i in Suicidology Conference

TRIPLE i is an international annual conference organised by the Slovene Centre for Suicide Research (Andrej Marušič Institute, University of Primorska, Slovenia) in memory of the late Prof. Andrej Marušič (around the time of his birthday) with the aim of promoting intuition, imagination and innovation in research and prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour.

During the last years the conference has connected many people in the field of suicide research and prevention. The conference has developed into a platform for fruitful discussion between distinguished experts, interacting with young and perspective suicidologists or other eager professionals in the field.

The programme includes topics of suicide research and clinical work with suicidal patients and thus we will address theory, research, prevention and interventions in suicidology. Eight speakers will have more time than in usual conferences to present their experiences and participants will be invited to share their views. Existing difficulties in both research and clinical work will be specifically addressed.

Students, professionals, scholars, practitioners or others interested in the topic of suicidal behaviours from different fields and different parts of the world are invited to join the conference. Let the TRIPLE i be the opportunity to express and practice your intuition, imagination and innovative ideas.

17th European Symposium on Suicide & Suicidal Behaviour
Ghent, Belgium

17th European Symposium on Suicide & Suicidal Behaviour

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 17th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB17), which will be held in Ghent, Belgium from 5-8 September 2018.

The scientific standard at the biennial European symposiums is now recognised as one of the best in the world, and over the years the European symposiums have become the most important international meeting in suicide and its prevention in Europe. During the symposium, researchers from all parts of Europe and from the rest of the world gather to present high-level scientific work, exchange knowledge and experience, and discuss implications for suicide prevention.

ESSSB17 aims at providing a high-quality, multidisciplinary scientific programme covering the most important aspects of suicidal behaviour and its prevention, and a dynamic platform for lively interactions and discussions. The focus of the scientific programme will be on state-of-the-art presentations as well as new insights from basic science and clinical research. Effects of therapeutic interventions and suicide prevention activities at various levels will be addressed particularly. There will be ample opportunities for young researchers to get involved and share their findings in an interactive scientific environment.

The vibrant city of Ghent offers a unique mixture of history, culture, gastronomy, and nightlife. In this context we are determined to organise a most stimulating congress and to make the stay in Ghent memorable, keeping in mind that the most important aspect for any congress is that participants feel part of it, and that they have the opportunity to learn and to exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues and friends from around the world.
