2017 International SCENAR Conference, celebrating 10 years of RITM SCENAR in Australia!

3rd – 6th of March 2017, Sydney, Australia


The 2017 International SCENAR Conference was held on 3rd – 6th of March 2017 in Sydney, Australia. It marked ITM Australia’s 10th Anniversary and it was a great success.

We had twelve presenters and forty two attendees from Australia, New Zealand, Japan and USA.

Over 25% of the delegates were new SCENAR Practitioners – proof that the SCENAR Profession is quickly growing in the Asia-Pacific region. Over 40% of the attendees were Level 3 Practitioners – the highest qualification in SCENAR Therapy.

The program was very intense and versatile, organised into two breakout rooms.

We received very positive feedback about the venue location, presenters and the topics covered. The delegates suggested that, in the future workshops with a greater emphasis on a ‘hands on’ approach would be welcomed.

RITM Australia has heard these suggestions and so we are organising 2-day practical workshops in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Mackay and New Zealand beginning from July 2017. Stay tuned and look for further details in our newsletters for dates and locations.

We thank our presenters as well as the delegates for their attendance and involvement in the Conference.

The next International Conference will be organised and held in New Zealand in 2019.
