ACEs to Assets – Fostering Resilience in a Stressed Culture


Scotland is currently in the grip of an awareness movement around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The science is in and the evidence is glaring, that childhood adversity creates harmful levels of stress which impacts on healthy brain development.

An event taking place on 11 June in The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall will explore current thinking. The day will consist of Dr Gabor Maté, world-renowned speaker and bestselling author, on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development. Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions to Dr Maté, plus Darren McGarvey, Orwell Prize winning author of Poverty Safari: Understanding the Anger of Britain’s Underclass, along with an experienced panel.

Tickets can be booked through eventbrite.
