About the Conference

Presenters will bring fascinating knowledge to you on the neuroscience of emotion, trauma, loss, and relationships that harm and relationships that heal.

The latest research on the neuroscience of all areas of mental health floods out of medical, scientific and research centres from all over the world. It’s really hard to keep up. Well now you don’t have to! The presenters will discuss the most up-to-date research to support your work in healing minds and brains (children, teenagers and adults). Neuroscience is not the jigsaw but a vital jigsaw piece and not knowing some key aspect of neurochemistry or neuroanatomy can leave a child, teenager or adult vulnerable to not receiving the relational interventions they need. Presenters will offer a synthesis of some of the most fascinating studies key to our knowledge of the human mind and science-based evidence of harm and healing. Prevention, intervention and reversibility will be discussed. They will bring the ‘centre stage’ affective neuroscientists to life; so you will go away familiar with their work and feel far more able to navigate around this vast terrain.

What you'll learn from attending?

  • Hear from some of the most eminent neuroscientists and neuroscience researchers in the world
  • Feel far more competent at referring to neuroscientific evidence to support your work with a vulnerable child, teenager or adult
  • Understand the power of pro-social neurochemicals in the process of healing and calming
  • Understand the relationship between the chemical brain and the intentional brain
  • Understand the impact of trauma and loss on the brain and prevention and intervention


Professor Eamon McCrory


Eamon McCrory is Professor of Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology at UCL and Co-Director of the Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit. His research uses brain imaging and psychological approaches to investigate the impact of childhood maltreatment on emotional development and mental health. The long-term aim of his work is to understand how and why mental health problems can unfold following early adversity, and how we might intervene to promote more resilient outcomes for children. Professor McCrory is also Co-Director of the UK Trauma Council, Director of Postgraduate Studies at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, and Visiting Professor at the Child Study Centre, Yale University.

Professor Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg

Kerstin Svd

Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg is a physician and professor of physiology. She is a specialist in women’s health and female physiology and has worked within these fields for more than 30 years. She is a pioneer in research about oxytocin, ”the hormone of love and wellbeing”, and was one of the first researchers to point out the behavioural, psychological and physiological effects of oxytocin during birth, breastfeeding and menopause. Her wish to understand the biology of women emerged when she had children herself. She found among other things that oxytocin reduces pain and anxiety, decreases blood pressure and reduces the levels of stress hormones in both sexes. She also found that the speed, by which wounds and other types of physical damage heal, increases and that atrophic (thin) mucosal membranes become rejuvenated. The vision to understand the basic role of oxytocin’s basic uniting, stress relieving and healing properties, from a physiological and psychological and even sociological point of view, has helped her to continue the pioneering research. Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg was also one of the first to study the role of oxytocin in response to closeness and touch as well as its role during interaction between parents and children and other types of relationships including that between humans and animals. Today Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg, who has written more than 400 scientific articles and several books on oxytocin, (which have been translated into 10 languages), is still publishing scientific articles and is involved in new book projects. She is frequently invited to give talks and lectures at meetings all over the world. More info: www.kerstinuvnasmoberg.com
