Adverse Childhood Experiences – NHS Health Scotland

NHS Health Scotland has produced this short animation to contribute to raising awareness about the impact of childhood adversity. We hope it can stimulate discussion about what action can be taken to both prevent and respond to early adversity.

Opening Doors: Trauma Informed Practice for the Workforce:

This animation is designed to be relevant to all workers within the workforce. It aims to support workers to know how to adapt the way they work to make a positive difference to people affected by trauma and adversity. Trauma is everybody’s business.
