“Abuse, neglect and other ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) 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 www.wavetrust.org)
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 Adverse Childhood Experiences predict a vulnerability to a hosts 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.
