Adverse Childhood Experiences: Adversity is not Destiny Conference on Friday 15 March 2019 at Greenwood Conference Centre, Dreghorn

Former Chief Superintendent Paul Main of Police Scotland provides an overview of Ayrshire Division’s journey towards becoming trauma informed and gives an insight into what being ‘trauma informed’ means to police officers and partners. He discusses the role of police in supporting people impacted by trauma and adversity and shares how his increased awareness led him to the realisation that people he encountered were often ‘running away from something, not to something’.
