Resilience Project

Our Resilience Project works across all schools in the Cardiff and Vale area (primary and secondary) building resilience with children, families, teachers and other staff that work with children and young people. 

Most people are familiar with the term ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (ACE’s) by now, but do we know how to move the theory and research into practise?

Standing on the shoulders of academics like Dan Hughes, Louise Bomber, Bruce Perry, Joseph Panksepp, Sue Gerhardt and Dan Siegal, the Welsh Government have funded Cardiff and the Vale University Health Board and the Mental Health Foundation to work across all schools in the Cardiff and Vale area (primary and secondary) building resilience with children, families, teachers and other staff that work with children and young people. 

Ten graduates, a project manager and clinical psychologist will be working in the education inclusion teams to trouble shoot, liaise, consult, train and help fill the gaps for children who have experienced adverse childhood traumas. They are coming up with innovative ways of helping build resilience with children and young people as well as strengthening existing services and building new partnerships. The project closes December 2020.
