Details of completed seminar series

The seminars included short presentations from researchers, clinicians, survivors, and others working in this area, followed by an open group discussion. The aims of each session were to:

  1. Create a space to share knowledge between experience, practice & research.
  2. Identify gaps in knowledge and service provision.
  3. To consider how new research could help address such gaps.

Seminars were held in the Neill Lecture Theatre on the second floor of the Trinity Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin.

Details of the sessions, along with Powerpoint slides where available, are given below.
