Trauma and resilience conference

Where is our outrage?

Lisa Cherry and Jane Evans hosted an inaugural conference on Trauma, Resilience and Recovery on June 2nd 2015. You can see a short video summarising the conference here.

Their work is concerned with raising awareness of the effects of early trauma and changing the way we work with children and families to take account of this, building an attachment focused and trauma aware society more able to support and heal those impacted by early (and ongoing) adversity. This is an issue that both Jane and Lisa are passionate about, and both speak and write extensively about it. Each has written a summary of the conference on their blog (Jane here and Lisa here).

Some would say this is timely as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), has issued guidelines, currently up for consultation, arguing that health and social care providers should train all key workers in assessing attachment difficulties and parenting quality, for children in – or on the edge of – care.
