We are delighted to be working with Ann Richardson and Nicky Fox, Healthy Minds Happy Babies, in North Berwick. After receiving a funding grant from the Survivor’s Support Innovation and Development Fund, we will be making our fourth documentary film about a group of women survivors with Post-Natal Depression, hearing from them what good service feels and looks like. This film will be launched early in 2018. We will keep you updated on news.

Director Sue Hampson will be the guest speaker at the Jeely Piece Club AGM on Tuesday the 6th of June, where she will talk about our current work and training on Parent Survivors and the challenges and anxieties they may face in bringing-up their children. We have been working with the Jeely for two years now, and welcome their recognition of the importance of working with the whole family for the benefit of the children of survivors.

Sue continues to supervise the Adoption UK team in Edinburgh and delivered a day-session to adopters, foster-parents and staff on vicarious trauma, which was well received.

Sue has been co-hosting seminars on Sexual Abuse alongside Naomi Partridge at the University of Edinburgh. The first of them, in February, was led by Madge Bray and focused on her latest book, ‘Rob the Robin and the Bald Eagle’. The second seminar will be on the 16th of June and will be led by Dr Sarah Nelson on the physical impact on the body of Childhood Sexual Abuse.

We are now participants in the Glasgow ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) group, examining how knowledge and information can be shared amongst services for the benefit of survivors of trauma.
