About the Training
Research tells us that adverse childhood events can lead to poorer educational and social outomces for children and young people and poorer health outcomes for adults. Housing associations and co-operatives by their very nature are interested in and can influence the resilience of their local communities.
This pilot training has been organised by SFHA in partnership with NHS Health Scotland to test learning materials for social housing providers that elaborate the link between adverse childhood experience, trauma and resilience and the housing sector.
Those taking part are expected to gain:
- Increased knowledge about what adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are;
- An understanding from research findings about links between adversity in childhood, health and wellbeing and health inequalities;
- An understanding about how early adversity can affect a person’s life;
- Knowledge about trauma informed practice; (will include a film clip about psychologically informed environments too)
- An opportunity to explore and discuss what this means in your organisation and in your role.
This is a pilot training project – and we will be looking for you to provide feedback on the materials and discussion.
