Shake the Disease

February 7th, 2018|

We have all heard the phrase, “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure!”. A phrase first offered as a warning about the risk of fires [...]



“We had the privilege of welcoming Dr Warren Larkin as the key note speaker at the recent (Jan 18) Stockport Safeguarding Adult and Children Boards joint development day. His session really set the scene as we worked on defining our ‘All Age Neglect Strategy’ later in the day. He presented an overview of the evidence base relating to Adverse Childhood Experience, the role of Routine Enquiry and a flavour of Trauma Informed Schools. There was a great deal of interest in the room and a lot of what he said resonated with practitioners working on the front line with vulnerable children and adults who find themselves in complex situations –‘Excellent speaker – knows how to hold the floor and keep the interest’. There was a lot of interest from schools colleagues in relation to Trauma Informed Schools – ‘I will be in contact to hear and learn more’. Participants commented that it ‘stimulated them to think differently. Is this a speaker I would recommend – most certainly”

“Dr Warren Larkin’s presentation at the inaugural South West ACES conference for system leaders led was a pivotal moment in capturing and inspiring hearts and minds to view childhood vulnerability through the lens of the ACEs Approach. We have benefitted from Warren’s extensive experience as a clinician, local leader, academic and national advisor. Through these insights we have developed a new South West network of leaders and practitioners committed work in a trauma informed way, a fresh perspective in reducing drug related deaths and plans for a better understanding of perinatal mental health. Other work continues- Thank you Warren”

“We have been grappling with how to integrate strands of complex needs work in Devon for some time; looking for core values and other unifying principles to help professionals from across sectors to find common ground. Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma Informed Practice have emerged as frameworks of interest, and yet it has been difficult to know how to implement them in a meaningful way to improve our outcomes across the board. Warren was invited to CoLab Exeter to help us understand the power and potential of these approaches, and explore as a cross-sector group, how we might apply them to one area of practice in particular – namely our work with women in the Justice system. In a one day workshop Warren brought these methods to life, by offering his insights and experience, and presenting complex material in a language and format that was accessible and exciting to everyone. The energy in the room was fantastic, and aside from receiving glowing feedback for the quality of the event from colleagues across this and a neighbouring county, we have also received requests and suggestions around piloting this work. So all in all this day was a fantastic return on our investment, and something we would highly recommend”
