Abuse, neglect and other Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) often travel from generation to generation – not because people are bad, but because they don’t get enough support. At least half the children in an average classroom will suffer ACEs. The Wave Trust
On Tuesday 2 April, Linda Davies and Rosemary Croft, two Wave Trust Ambassadors, will be leading discussions on Trauma Informed Communities and showing the film Resilience.
The film shows how ACEs predict a vulnerability to a host of future problems, and that resilience can protect against this. Discussion afterwards will focus on what we can do to build this protection and help Reading to become a Trauma Informed Community.
This event will be in the Conference Room on the Third Floor of Reading Central Library, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
Places are limited so please book your place via Eventbrite.
