"Addiction has a root cause—not just addiction to a particular drug—that needs to be addressed and treated. We need to address the trauma that causes addiction in the first place, so having a trauma-informed workforce is key." @AlisonJohnstone

As police you recognise that you can make a big difference. #EarlyIntervention creates better outcomes for vulnerable people. We know you can’t do this alone…

Delighted to see the National Trauma Training Programme continued to be supported in the SG Programme for Government 2019-20 #TransformingPsychologicalTrauma

First day of data collection today! Focus groups with police officers @AyrshirePolice to explore their experiences of #ACEs awareness raising as a step towards becoming a #traumainformed service

Excellent to see. @BDPerry pioneering work has taught us much about how #trauma affects the brain and behaviour. His books and therapy model have had a major impact in many areas. Let's hope this coverage helps that impact grow further in the UK #traumainformed #ACEs

Human beings are designed to share & care. Wither it’s food, personal items, time, thoughts, ideas, feelings, dreams, hopes, fears! Humans feel best when they share & care. It’s through sharing & caring people might see, I’m like you & your like me. #CaringAndSharing

So exciting to read about Welsh trauma-informed care success in yesterday’s @thetimes

“South Wales is not unique in taking this approach but is doing it particularly well”
