In this interactive session, Beverley shares her timeline of Lived Experience and her Professional Perspective, as a Trauma-Informed Specialist Recovery Practitioner. This also included Chris sharing hers too, to give an objective view of different experiences and their impact later into Adulthood.

Science is recognising the impact of trauma - physically, mentally (neurologically) and emotionally, with pre-disposed medical and psychosocial outcomes of children with adverse experiences, into adulthood.

What about the impact of secondary trauma and triggers on the caregivers?

As you will see in the video – the results of the polls conducted were very interesting.  251 people registered to join the session and a selection of the audience participated in the live anonymous polls resulting in some very interesting results.
