An agenda through which #traumainformed approaches and other means of tackling #ACEs could (and should) play a large part. Glad to see Scotland are taking this on board #ACEAwareNation

Thank you @AnneMarieMorris for endorsing our campaign. With your support, we can now say that 300 MPs support our call to reduce child maltreatment by 70% by the year 2030 - a major showing of support for tackling #ACEs in our society #TraumaInformedUK

When Schools Meet Trauma With Understanding, Not Discipline /@NPR #traumainformed #traumainformedschools In light of shootings by troubled youth, we need more than understanding, but certainly alternative to discipline.

Lovely to spend time with team 3 in Central today. Enjoying embedding the learning from #acetime across @SWPSwansea. Supporting officers to identify #ACES and work in a #traumainformed way. @ACEsPoliceWales @BarnardosCymru @AceLeadSWP

Last night I was a victim of a burglary whereby my car a Grey VW Golf GTI LS18AYM was stolen from my driveway in Sussex. Keys taken. At 0300 was seen in West Mids!

Thankyou to my colleagues thus far. Family safe but would be grateful of some help to try & find it.

Great share @warren_larkin! 🙏

“...trauma in childhood is a very very powerful predictor of serious problems like experiencing psychotic events in adult life...”

We need to shift resources towards prevention.

From @Telegraph (2016)

“There are no pills, band-aids or magic wands that can fix childhood trauma. What is very effective is building hope for the future, kindness, compassion, love, patience and support!” -Dr. Bryan Pearlman

@PoemsFaRunaway @7030Campaign “We will never stop ‘picking up the pieces’ and in fact, levels of child maltreatment will never go down if we continue doing the same old things we’ve always done.”
George Hosking OBE – CEO of WAVE Trust

You can become an ambassador.

Yet police forces across the UK are instead pursuing a trauma-informed approach in ever greater numbers, inc working with other sectors, a public health approach that has a proven track record in reducing crime and violent crime #traumainformed #ACEs

@_LisaCherry Perhaps we should ask MPs who have endorsed @7030Campaign to have a word with @patel4witham so that she gains awareness & understanding of issues. @Kirstene4Angus perhaps or Ian Duncan Smith? 70/30 Campaign could supply info & resources if you require them.

Here's a thread on what the story of 1950s childrn's hospital care helps us understand abt attachment, class, power & profssnl systems in British culture. I'm drawing on a research paper I've talked abt several times in the past couple weeks, including @cisweb & @Derbyshirecc .

'He says: Addiction shouldn’t be called “addiction”. It should be called “ritualized compulsive comfort-seeking”.'
