Virtual Conference | There’s still time to sign-up for November

There’s still time to sign-up for our virtual conference which is about putting trauma and trauma-informed practice into the context of young people from serving personnel, reservist and veteran families as well as exploring its impact on mental health, learning, relationships with others and future pathways in life.

If we embed trauma informed practice in our work is that enough to support Armed Forces Young people? Is there anything else we should be considering? Is there anything we need to be mindful of in relation to this group of children and young people’s unique experiences. Whatever your background, our conference is an opportunity to join us on Wednesday 03 November 2021 in this exploration and conversation.


Who should consider attending?

Since being trauma informed is a national ambition within Scotland, relevant to all of us, our conference will be of interest to a wide variety of people who wish to expand upon their continual professional development; from those working within education, social care, community, armed forces and the third sector. Our virtual conference is an opportunity for professionals working with Armed Forces children, young people and families to come together, hear about and share good practice.
