Professor Helen Milroy is one of six Commissioners to receive a Media Award (Written) by the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) for her involvement in the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
The six Royal Commissioners and the Senior Counsel Assisting the Royal Commission who received this award were recognised for their contribution to the work. They occupied roles that were central to the outstanding success of the venture and they represented for many the public face of the Royal Commission.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was honoured by the ISSTD at their annual conference in Chicago.
The ISSTD’s charter makes provision for honouring contributions of non-members of the ISSTD in the general area of trauma and dissociation where such contributions have entered the public domain via the media.
The other recipients included:
- Hon. Justice Peter McClellan AM
- Hon. Justice Jennifer Coate
- Commissioner Bob Atkinson AO APM
- Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald AM
- Commissioner Andrew Murray
- Ms. Gail Furness SC
