Alongside leading trauma-informed care practitioner Becky Haas, Dr Warren Larkin will be delivering a Resiliency Accelerator – an event designed to start a global conversation on the implementation of ACEs science.
Becky Haas is based in Tennessee in the United States and will bring her perspective and experience from the USA. Both Warren and Becky will share best practise and examples of the pioneering work they have led.
This event is suitable for anyone who has an interest in the prevention and mitigation of adverse childhood experiences, childhood trauma, cross-sector collaboration, global perspectives and sharing best practice.
About the session
Date: Wednesday 24 February 2021
Time: 17:00 – 18:30 GMT
In the same way, COVID-19 has had a global impact, we know ACEs are universal and must be addressed. The aim of the session is to help accelerate best practices, encourage existing ACEs communities in their work and help to identify ACEs advocates in as many nations as possible.
Warren will give his perspective on why systems change is essential in order to prevent and mitigate the impacts of childhood adversity and to transform the health and wellbeing of future generations. He will also share the TASC Model (Trauma Aware Systems Change) as a way of conceptualising the key areas for cross-sector partnership and action.
Becky will share her experience of seeing regional acceptance of ACEs as a social determinant to health within rural Appalachia and the steps taken that can be replicated by cities around the world. She will also give examples of advocating for trauma-informed care, educating professional sectors and collaborating with stakeholders.
Attendees are welcome to share their learning and ideas about how ACEs science is being advanced globally and there will be opportunities for questions and discussion at the end.
