Our Associates Action Trauma are delighted to announce the launch of its Virtual Intergenerational Trauma Conference, bringing together over 3,500 delegates on 19th and 20th January 2021.

This important international event brings together world-leading authorities and experts in the field of intergenerational trauma and trauma recovery.  Understand and be aware of the many factors surrounding intergenerational trauma and look deeper into inherited behaviours and epigenetics.  As trauma is passed down from generation to generation, the impact it has on the expression of our genes can be hugely significant.  This new field of study uncovers the roots of pain so that present generations may be healed and future generations might not be impacted. 

Delivering a full schedule of dynamic thought leaders and experts in the field of trauma over 2 days, delegates will gain the knowledge and skills to make a difference to people within your community, classroom and their own professional practice and development.

During the two days you will have the opportunity to:

  • Network with over 3,000 professionals from around the world on a digital platform
  • Learn from World-Leading experts
  • Take part in live Q & A Sessions   
  • Take part in breathing and mindfulness exercises
  • Observe panel discussions with leading experts.
  • Networking opportunities
  • CPD accreditation 

We are delighted to have international speakers such as Stephen Porges, Rachel Yehuda, Dr Felicity De Zulueta and Kenneth V Hardy along with so many other experts in the field of intergenerational trauma. Please see attached schedule below of all speakers and content over the two days. You can view full details of the event, including booking, on our brand new website: www.inheritedtrauma.org Book now and don’t miss out on this unique event. Tickets are priced at £98 for both days and each delegate will receive a CPD accredited certificate.

“Together TV is glad to announce that on Sunday 14th June at 8 pm, we will air groundbreaking documentary Resilience;  The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, a UK premiere. Sky channel 170, Freeview 88, Virgin Media 269, Freesat 164.“Whilst society often portrays childhood as a time of hapiness and innocence, the sad reality for many children is that this is simply not true. In general, we assume that children are resilient and tough; we expect that they won’t clearly remember upsetting events from their earliest years in their later ones. However, will the mind may forget, this clever documentary highlights that the body still remembers. Resilience reveals how toxic stress in pre-teens can trigger hormones that can wreak havoc on their brains and bodies.” Well worth a watch!

 

Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP) is a very innovative and empowering early help attachment programme for parents and their children from 3-15+. It can be delivered with groups, 1:1 or through a home-visiting model.  Parents and carers are often concerned about their children’s behaviour and that by adopting a playful attachment approach they will somehow lose control over their family life.  In fact, the opposite is true.  When the parent-child relationship is working, helpful child behaviour generally follows and family life becomes more manageable.

 This 10-step programme is based on the latest attachment research which shows that supporting the parent-child attachment relationship sets the scene for the best outcomes for children right into adulthood.

 PCAP involves sharing three skills with parents and carers through interactive workshop-style sessions;

1.  Play (and the creation of a shoebox or bag of toys/activities designed around the preferences of the child)

2.  Containment (managing time, environment, emotions and helping children to make helpful choices)

3.  Head, Heart and Hands (an attachment tool based on evidence-based Reflective Functioning

 Courses are targeted towards professionals working with children and families not parents.

We know that good mental health begins early in life, and is particularly influenced by our relationships with our primary caregivers. This relationship between parent and child is referred to as an attachment.

Sometimes this attachment can be secure and healthy, but for around 30% of the population, their attachment is insecure and can lead to mental health difficulties later in life. Event hosted by ‘The British Psychological Society, NI”
