It was an honour to have our work featured in the May/June issue of the Irish Primary Principal’s Network’s Leadership+ magazine. In a co-authored article, we shared insight into our work in raising awareness of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and the role supportive relationships play in protecting against and mitigating the impact of ACEs.
Dr Maeve Hurley, Dr Margaret O’ Rourke, Kate O’ Connell and Niamh Moran wrote about our series of facilitated screenings of the award winning documentary, ‘Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope’ and highlighted the importance of ACE awareness in schools and the teacher-child relationship in supporting those who have or are experiencing adversity.
We also had an opportunity to share news of ABLE4SchoolLeaders – how and why relationships matter in schools, our new evidence-informed training programme for school leaders and aspiring school leaders which has been endorsed by the Centre for School leadership.
