We invite you to join us for Healing the Wounds of Adversity, a 2 day training event on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Resilience.

Connected for Life has been delivering training for organisations and groups in N Ireland on ACEs and Resilience for a number of years. We have developed this training in response to requests from individuals who are interested in the training, but have not been able to access organisational training.

This 2 day event will be informative, thought provoking, fun and interactive. It will explore adversity, the wounds it leaves and how we can reach for resilience. Some people may find it challenging as it invites participants to safely reflect on their childhood experiences, relationships and triggers. 

It will:

  • Introduce the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study and explain how this applies in the N Ireland context

  • Outline the mechanisms by which ACEs lead to poor health and social outcomes – Toxic stress and its impact on the brain, body, attachment, core beliefs and self-regulation 

  • Explore the ESSENCE of resilience

  • Use real life examples to explore ACEs / resilience

  • Examine how and why relationships underpin resilience-building

  • Discuss how having an awareness and making sense of personal early experiences can enhance practice and / or personal and family relationships

  • Explore strategies to help build and nurture resilience

The event will incorporate a screening of the acclaimed documentary Resilience, the biology of stress and the science of hope.. , 

Tea and coffee and training resource pack will be provided but lunch is not included. 

We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
