Adversity, Trauma and Resilience Webinar Series - Adverse Childhood Experiences HIT

Date: 9 November 2020 to 20 November 2020
Cost: Free

Adversity, Trauma and Resilience: A series of webinars from the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Health Integration Team

All webinars in this series are open to all partners across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG). Collectively these events consider the impacts of adversity and trauma across the life course so are relevant to professionals working with children, young people and adults.

This webinar series will highlight some of the work underway across the area to further develop ACE aware and trauma informed policy and practice.

Partners across the area are invited to engage in these webinars as part of ongoing dialogue between organisations. We hope to stimulate thinking and reflection, and further develop a joined up approach and shared resources that benefit our local communities.
