Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in the general population of Scottish children.

 

SCPHRP’s Alexandra Blair attended the Society for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies Conference at the University of Stirling (October 11-13, 2017) to present work by Dr. Louise Marryat and Professor John Frank on the prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in the general population of Scottish children.

 

Knowledge Exchange event

SCPHRP’s Jane Hartley attended a knowledge exchange event hosted by PhD candidate Divya Sivaramakrishnan who is based at The Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC https://www.ed.ac.uk/education/rke/centres-groups/pahrc ). Divya shared her research findings on her work looking at yoga in the older adult population. This is in line with Jane’s current project (along with John McAteer and Sam Bain) designing a relaxation resource for kinship carers (mainly grandmothers) who care for teenagers. The image is of an artist (http://www.studiojojo.co/) who captured the ongoing discussions of the event.
