Austria 2014

The National Conference in Austria „Together Against Violence – Aggression in out of home care” took place on the 15th and 16th of September 2014 in Krems an der Donau.

The conference was opened by Mrs. Landtagsabgeordnete Karin Scheele and moderated by Mr. Hermann Radler. The conference turned out to be a huge success.

Prof.Dr.phil. Silke Gahleitner, Dr. Katharina Gerlich and Mrs. Heidemarie Hinterwallner, from the Danube University Krems, presented the scientific findings of the study „Together Against Violence“. The recommendations for improving legislation and services on the subject were presented by Mrs. Astrid Haider-Reisner BSc, MA.

During the conference were made fascinating presentations about “Family Group Conference” by Prof. Christine Haselbacher,  about „Social Network Conferece in probation” by Mr. Hansjörg Schlechter and Mr. Jacob Bausum had presented the topic “Trauma and Group”. In the end of the first day was facilitated discussion between the participants.

On the second day the participants were able to choose between a workshop held by Mr. Hannes Lutz on the topic of “Relationship Building with Traumatised Children” and a workshop held by Mrs. Michaela Belada on the topic “Traumapedagogy by Dr. Andreas Krüger”.

The participants of the conference were very active during both days and our project team would like to express its gratitude for their involvement.
