In June 2018, some of our staff including our CEO, attended Rock Pool's Adverse Childhood Experiences Recovery Toolkit training. This training included understanding and living with ACEs, understanding toxic stress and strategies to manage it, developing parental resilience, understanding attachment, nurturing parenting styles, managing emotions, and developing strategies to reduce the potential impact of ACEs on children

As part of only 19 attending the first training held in Scotland, we are at the forefront of tackling and preventing ACEs for our families.

We have been running our own groupwork programme following on from this. Since completing the training we have had a total of 34 parents completing our programme, and we have been receiving fantastic feedback from attendees. Watch this space to find out more about how we will be reaching more people across Scotland in 2019 and beyond!
