Associate Professor Michael Salter


I am an Associate Professor in Criminology at Western Sydney University, Australia. I specialise in the study of organised sexual abuse. In addition to my work on complex trauma, I have researched and published widely on violence against women and children.

I sit on the Scientific Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. I am an Associate Editor of Child Abuse Review, the peer-reviewed journal of the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect. I act as a consultant and trainer to a range of non-government organisations and government departments at the state and national level.

I am available for consultations and to provide training on complex trauma and organised abuse for professionals in mental health, child protection, law enforcement and related agencies. Please contact me here.
