I was privileged to be invited along to this conference as a guest held in the Glasgow science centre. Albeit I was still a bit spaced out from my week on intensive meditation at Dr Joe Dispenza’s retreat.

The days consisted of a series of international neuroscience academics and therapists delivering various workshops and or key note addresses to over 300 members of STAF that work in the Childcare environment in Scotland.

Lots of presentation on brain development and the lifelong effects of early childhood trauma. I was very impressed with the Bruce Perry trained therapist flown over from Holland to deliver some amazing practical ways to work with those adults suffering the effects of childhood trauma.

The work done by the ACE (adverse childhood experiences) team in Glasgow has pushed the topic of trauma informed organisations and trauma responsive workers in the childcare field to the forefront of people minds in Scotland.
