Today, we are holding an online event to mark three years since our first facilitated screening of ‘Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope’ in 2018.
Our ‘Attending to Adversity and Connecting with Hope’ virtual event provides a safe space to consolidate the knowledge gained from the documentary to date, to hear first-hand accounts of the impact of the work, and to reaffirm why relationships matter in frontline practice.
A multidisciplinary group of frontline practitioners are gathering to hear first-hand experiences of the power of supportive relationships in practice in community, educational and parental settings.
Katherine Harford, manager of Let’s Grow Together, Nickie Egan, principal of North Presentation Primary School, and Brendan Dennehy, facilitator and trainer and founder/director of The Fatherhood Programme, will share their experiences of the impact of quality relationships in practice.
During the event, we will also launch ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences: 50 reasons to support relationships in practice’, a document based on the key messages and findings from an audit of our facilitated screenings to date.
This event highlights the importance of ACE awareness and of responsive relationships and their potential for buffering, prevention and protective influence.
We look forward to sharing more details after the event in a follow-up blog post.
Our ‘Tree of Hope’ at our first facilitated screening of the Resilience documentary at Nano Nagle Place in 2018 captured feedback and messages of hope from attendees.
