What has the Early Years got to do with it - EVERYTHING!

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsKeynoteResearch


Children are more likely to experience a range of traumatic experiences in the Early Years, including child abuse and the consequences of living in environments where domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse are prevalent. These experiences can impact across the life course and the cost to the individual and society can be immense. This presentation challenges us to think about the rights of our youngest children to a professionalised Early Years workforce that understands their role in all areas of early childhood trauma. A workforce that pro-actively creates safe, nurturing environments and that promotes aspiration and life chances for all children.
