After many months of planning, Brainwave is pleased to announce the 2018 Brainwave Conference, which will take place in Auckland on 6 March and Wellington on 8 March.

Brainwave is delighted to bring from the USA, Professor Philip Fisher, Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University. Professor Fisher’s work focuses on developing and evaluating early childhood interventions in socially and economically marginalised communities, and on translating scientific knowledge for use in social policy and programmes. He is particularly interested in the effects of early stressful experiences on children's neurobiological and psychological development, and in prevention and treatment programmes 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. Check out the conference flyer for information about the speakers and programme.

Brainwave is offering an early bird discounted rate available until the end of the year. See their website to reserve your place.
