“An exceptional journey”

This training event will enable you to explore adverse childhood experiences and resilience through the real-life experiences of David Gillen, Social Work Consultant.  

David’s journey through personal, interpersonal and institutional trauma will help you make sense of the theory and research on adverse childhood experiences, resilience, trauma and attachment.

This training will explore:

• The personal, individual and lifelong impact of trauma

• Local and national research on adverse childhood experiences and trauma

• What is resilience and how we can enable it

• What we can learn from David’s experiences and what we can do as practitioners to ensure our relationships and services are trauma informed
