Submissions must be made via the conference website. The third Australian Grief and Bereavement Conference will enhance your knowledge, widen your personal and professional network, stimulate your clinical and research practice, while providing a relaxing and memorable time in a beautiful and picturesque setting. It will also give you the opportunity to re-assess your self care strategies and grow your toolkit.
