Brainwave Conference 2018: Advancing Effective Child-Centred Practice

For professionals working with vulnerable families in our community.

After many months of planning, Brainwave is pleased to announce the 2018 Brainwave Conference which will take place in both Auckland and Wellington in March.

 Brainwave is delighted to bring from the USA, Professor Philip Fisher, Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University.  Prof. Fisher’s work focuses on developing and evaluating early childhood interventions in socially and economically marginalized communities, and on translating scientific knowledge for use in social policy and programs.  He is particularly interested in the effects of early stressful experiences on children's neurobiological and psychological development, and in prevention and treatment programs for improving maltreated children's functioning in areas such as attachment to caregivers, relationships with peers, and functioning in school.

Brainwave has a range of national speakers who are best placed to share their collective knowledge and bring you the most up-to-date information for Advancing Effective Child-Centred Practice.

This conference promises to be informative, innovative and practical to allow you take away and implement ideas into your own working practice. 

 Brainwave is offering an early bird discounted rate available until the end of the year
