The Adverse Childhood Experience Conference 2020 - Wakefield
@National Coal Mining Museum for England New Road Overton WF4 4RH
This full day conference will bring together an eclectic mix of thought leaders to explore the effect of Adverse Childhood Experiences and trauma on a child and consider the impact that this can have on their learning, development and overall wellbeing. The day is intended to give multi agency professionals a deep dive into understanding children and young people who have been affected by any kind of trauma and how they can relate to them, assist and support them in order to reduce harm. There will be a range of speakers and workshops throughout the day. We look forward to seeing you there to begin these crucial conversations and build these critical professional networks.
