ACEs CPD day with all inclusive refreshments and lunch £65

Merseyside Association of Family Therapy presents

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): systemic understandings and responses

An outline of the original ACE study will be presented, explored and discussed.  This will lead on to consider the biology of the stress response.  We will look at what is ‘trauma’ and how it impacts on our physical and mental wellbeing across the life course.

The day will include a screening of the ground-breaking documentary RESILIENCE.  There will be an opportunity to explore the impact and application of the content of this documentary.

The day will be a mixture of teaching, experiential exercises and small group work.  The workshop is suitable for staff in mental and physical health services, social care, education and the 3rd sector who want an introduction to and chance to explore the impacts of trauma.

Wednesday 25th September 2019

  • Jackie Lunt – Psychotherapist and social worker with over 20 years experience in the helping professions, 12 years in NHS CAMH services and visiting lecturer at several universities.
  • Dr Michael Galbraith – Clinical Psychologist and Supervising Systemic Psychotherapist, LivPIP clinical lead.

A CPD certificate will be handed out at the end of the workshop.
