camera logo“This acclaimed documentary raises issues that we are maybe reluctant to talk about and highlights that what happens to us in childhood can have a life-long impact.  The most powerful message of all is that what is predictable is preventable: if we know that adverse childhood experiences have an impact we can do something about it.

Cost: £50

*All participants will be given a CPD certificate upon completion.
