Event Description

The aims of the day were to:

  • Share multi-disciplinary research findings on childhood adversity to inform policy and practice in Scotland;
  • Identify priorities for future research;
  • Develop a network to share evidence and contribute to future research seminars


Delegates heard from academic professionals involved in research from a diverse range of areas.  This exciting opportunity brought together evidence and research to inform policy and practice aimed at preventing and mitigating ACEs in Scotland. We would also like to explore interest in developing a network of people who can both contribute to future research seminars and also help identify gaps in our current knowledge base.
