About the Conference

The first GC-TS conference will be held in Cape Town, South-Africa, hosted by Stellenbosch University, between 12-14 December 2023.

Advancing knowledge and collaborations

The conference will cover all GC-TS themes, including (cross-cultural) assessment, prevention and treatment of traumatic stress, and will feature renowned international speakers such as Prof. Dr. Debra Kaysen, Prof. Dr. Monique Pfalz, Dr. Rachel Langevin, Prof. Dr. Denise Hien, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schnyder and Prof. Dr. Miranda Olff, as well as speakers from the region.

We explicitly invite both international participants as well as South-Africans and others from the region in the spirit of connecting and collaborating on topics of global importance.

There will be ample time for networking, for cross-cultural learnings, for discussion on key topics in psychotraumatology and we will create opportunities for local-global research partnerships. Please find more details in the preliminary program.
