No More Harm National Conference

Bullying | Harassment | Discrimination

The 2018 No More Harm National Conference will be held at Pullman Melbourne on the Park on Thursday 12– Friday 13 April 2018.

Harm is physical or psychological damage or injury; something that causes someone or something to be hurt, broken, made less valuable, reputable or successful, etc.

Behaviours and attitudes that are harmful to others in the workplace, school yard, social situation, interpersonal relationship or sporting activity will be discussed with a solution based approach.  Harm intervention and behaviour change will be examined at the conference which is in its’ 6th year.

This conference is an ideal platform to exchange ideas and learn more from other professionals, researchers and practitioners that work with individuals, groups and organisations with bullying, harassing or discriminating behaviour challenges and outcomes.

‘It is a privilege to join you for the 2018 No More Harm National Conference. This signifies a powerful opportunity for our strategic conversation towards establishing healthy culture as a norm in Australian schools and workplaces. I look forward to a dynamic and pioneering event, as we consider our collective behavioural standards- and what it truly must take for the construction of cultures in which people feel energised, respected and motivated in their day-to-day lives.’

Dr Skye Saunders, Conference Co-Chair
