Resilience and adverse childhood experiences

Training Overview

Building Resilience to counteract Adverse Childhood Experiences- how out of school care services can support children in their care.

Duration: 2 hours 30 mins

Objectives of training: participants will gain an understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)- what they are, how to recognise if children are being adversely affected, and how to help build children’s resilience to counteract any negative effects.

As part of the training we shall show the film 'Resilience. The biology of stress and the science of hope.' (60mins) and provide opportunities for discussion as well as practical ideas to implement in out of school care services.


Delivery of training: this training can be delivered to local out of school care networks, clusters of services or individual groups. The maximum number of participants is 20.

SOSCN cannot organise the training locally, so anyone interested in booking this training will be required to also organise the venue and booking of delegates.

Sessions can be delivered in the morning, evening or at weekends subject to availability.
