HMH Conference 2019Day One: Monday, 25 November 2019

‘Parenting: Passions and Pain’

Day Two:  Tuesday, 26 November 2019

Full-day workshop: ‘Motherhood in the Face of Trauma: Vulnerability, Resilience and Therapeutic Interventions’

Venue: The Adelaide Convention Centre

The 2019 Helen Mayo House Annual Conference is a two-day event of education and inspiration on the theme of “Parenting: Passions and Pain”.

Passions of different sorts drive both conception and the desire to have a family. The closeness of being “shore to the ocean” is often yearned for, yet the endless repetitions of parenting challenge all new parents, with some experiencing distress, illness and pain in the process. The passions and pain of infants are equally intense.

Dr Maria Muzak, from the University of Michigan, will address the issues of the topic of vulnerability, resilience and effective therapy for mothers with trauma histories in a plenary talk on day one and will hold a longer workshop on day two.

Other Day One presenters include:

Dr Rebecca Hill: Could it be postpartum psychosis? What clinicians need to know

Dr Liz Coventry: Trauma and dissociation

Dr Anne Sved Williams, AM: The panorama of perinatal emotional dysregulation

Dr Ros Powrie: Trauma and the body

Dr Jackie  Amos: Reunification work after Child Protection intervention

Dr Tonia Mezzini:  Couples and sexuality after babies

Meg Prior: The eyes have it: the role of gaze in infant mental health

Jane Woolmer: The impact of the work on the worker

Valerie Aylesbury and Joy Makepeace: Aboriginal Families

Steve Sheehy: Fathers
