This year the SCAP Conference is being held at the Ian Potter Auditorium, in the Kenneth Myer Building, Melbourne University. In the same building is the Dax Centre, housing The Cunningham Dax Collection of Art, works which have all been created by people who have a lived experience of mental health issues or psychological trauma. SCAP Delegates will have the opportunity to attend a guided tour of the Gallery and/or visit the gallery during the lunch breaks. Guided tours will be held concurrently with conference presentations (delegates will have access to session recordings post-conference).
The Dax Gallery guided tour is optional and is an additional $10 per delegate. Places are limited and on a "first-in" basis.
The 2023 SCAP Conference is primarily be a f2f event and we strongly encourage you to attend in person to benefit from the full conference experience, however if you are unable to do so, you may consider a virtual registration. This will particularly appeal to those in interstate or in regional/rural areas.
Virtual Registration includes access to the live streaming of all conference sessions, and you will have the ability to ask speakers questions. It also includes access to all recordings post-conference. Interaction with delegates and sponsors will be very limited.
Please take these factors into account when making your registration selection.
Help us spread the word about the 2023 SCAP Conference - open to all counsellors, psychologists, mental health practitioners, social workers, related practitioners who work with, and support, young people and their mental health.
