Adversity, Hope and Living Life to the Full


This event will see Ross Gibson of CYCJ explore life experiences of young people who have resided within secure care, drawing on a census which captured young people’s exposure to traumatic episodes, Adverse Childhood Experiences and a range of other factors.

Professor Chris Williams (Glasgow University) will discuss ways of working with children and young people that tackle low mood and stress, and support and engender hope and resiliency. He will also consider ways of supporting adults to live life to the full.

This will set the scene for contributions from the Talking Hope project which aims to develop a dynamic and innovative framework to support more hopeful transitions into and out of secure care.
