A Climate for Change
An International Summit : Advancing Theory, Research, Policy & Practice in Addiction
A highlight of the 2008 International Addiction Summit Melbourne Australia 10-12th July 2008
‘A Climate for Change’ is a 2-day summit, with post-summit professional development workshops, that will inform, enliven and expand your understanding of addiction.
Look back at the past. Look forward to new ideas.
We have invited some of the world’s leading experts in the field -- who have brought cutting-edge theory, science, and practice to bear on advancing our thinking of addiction -- and gathered them together. The people that changed our understanding of addiction.
“The underlying reason for the summit is to get conceptual leaders to think outside the box, to identify important gaps in knowledge, and to suggest potentially important types or areas of research to move the field forward at a faster rate. It is a place for thoughtful and high level intellectual stimulation accompanied by enthusiastic discussion. The intent is to provoke rather than contemplate.” - Mark Sobell
