Scotland is in the midst of a cultural revolution.

More and more of us are coming to understand the impact of childhood distress on adult health and happiness.

Since 2017, thousands of Scots have joined in this national discussion. Our events bring international speakers who can help in exploring key themes that arise from this discussion. Together we can create the conditions needed to boost prevention and healing from childhood suffering.

Our goal remains helping every single citizen of our country to better understand the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

We never forget that relationships are key to prevention and recovery from trauma.

We believe in the transformative power of compassion.

There are only 5 million of us in Scotland.

We can do this.

Because the articles appeared in an academic journal, many members of the public missed their publication. This document was created in 2023 in order to help a wider audience share in discussions about the links between the sciences of ACEs and attachment.
