Ely Centre invited to present at National Conference


The Ely Centre, Enniskillen were honoured to receive a recent invitation to the Royal College of Psychiatry in London to present at the UK & IRELAND EMDR Conference. This conference will bring together Mental Health Professionals from across the UK, Ireland and further afield to share up-to-date knowledge and learning in the field of psychological trauma.

Mr David Hutton, Clinical Director will be presenting to this esteemed gathering in March 2018 on findings derived from clinical learning gained from trauma work with victims of the Troubles. This unique opportunity will provide a learning platform for clinicians from across Europe to learn of the devastating impact that terrorism and trauma have left upon the Northern Ireland populace and how evidenced based approaches are beginning to address complex PTSD in our society.

It has long been an opinion of those working within the Victims Sector that the complexity of the trauma suffered by so many of our populace should be placed front and centre in the international field of trauma and its treatment, this presentation forms part of an organisational and sector strategy to lead evidenced based research in the field of trauma treatment and the expertise which can be transported to all areas suffering similar levels of trauma within their respective communities.
