Once we accept that adversity in childhood negatively affects children’s outcomes how do we take this knowledge and apply it effectively in practice? What have we learnt from settings using ACEs and trauma-informed approaches about what to do, and what not to do to help children thrive?

Join us at this conference and share learning about using ACEs and trauma-informed approaches in practice. Learn about the latest research in the field and meet colleagues from a range of settings and sectors facing the same challenges

The conference will include sessions on topics such as:

  • What have we learnt from national policy implementation of the ACEs approach in Wales and Scotland
  • A parent's perspective in trauma
  • What does the research on ACEs actually tell us ?
  • What makes a good trauma-informed setting in education (and early years)?
  • A whole service transformation using an ACEs informed approach
  • Report of the REACH pilot evaluation on ACEs in health
  • Operation Encompass: A police/Education collaboration to reduce the impact of childhood adversity
