Recorded Saturday 18 September 2021
In the wake of COVID, this conference will address the highly topical issue of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and a therapeutic approach, Trauma Informed Care (TIC), which has been found to be highly effective in addressing the needs of people who have been neglected, abused, or otherwise traumatised in childhood.READ MORE...
Studies, particularly by Dr Vincent Felitti and Dr Robert Anda (1998), have established beyond doubt the link between ACEs or “relational-trauma”, and subsequent ill health.
The conference will explore specific mechanisms whereby psychological stress and trauma in childhood take root in the body right down to a cellular level with a special focus on Racism as an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE). The speakers will then address what can be done to minimise the effects of ACEs through Trauma Informed Care, involving the therapeutic provision of highly attuned caring relationships which can heal many of the dysregulating effects of early trauma, improving resilience and life prospects.
Our presenters, including the voices of three survivors of ACEs, will be sharing how TIC can be applied across different settings in the community such as schools, psychotherapy services, and general practice.
CPD – An optional certificate of attendance for up to 7 hours of CPD, based on completion of a multiple choice questionnaire, will be available soon.
