Creating Compassionate Communities Conference 2022
The inaugural Phoenix Creating Compassionate Communities Conference was held on Wednesday 12 October 2022. This highly successful event fostered networking across the sector and provided delegates with important information on early intervention to prevent child sexual abuse and childhood trauma. From the Hon. Simone McGurk’s address, to the interactive, trauma sensitive yoga session delivered by Coby Greer, the Conference was a unique opportunity for professional development and access to national resources and strategies. The aim of the Conference was to generate conversations around how we create compassionate communities together, how to build respect and what is shaping our society? How do we influence young minds and hearts surrounded by social media messages and pornography that are contrary to supporting the development of respect, or fostering compassion for others or demonstrating that love and kindness are the foundation on which healthy relationships are built? Preventing childhood sexual abuse and trauma is everyone’s business!
