STARTTS’ 2021 Annual Research Symposium was held on 27 October 2021. Professor Suresh Sundram shared his recent research on the demoralisation of people seeking asylum going through the refugee determination process. This was followed by Professor Susan Rees who presented the very hot and timely topic of recent research on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and wellbeing of people from refugee backgrounds. In its seventh year, STARTTS’ annual research symposium aims to summarise the latest information and research in the field of refugee trauma; ranging from advances in neuroscience and impacts of torture and trauma to the newest findings on clinical implications, interventions and outcomes. It brings together the expertise of well-known Australian researchers whose work has gained wide international recognition.
