Applying an understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences to the current Covid19 situation and beyond…

Considering the wider implication of some philosophical and psychological research in the practice of being a headteacher – a general application of attachment and trauma-informed practice for primary aged children… and everyone.

Duncan Roberts will facilitate an exploration of some ancient and recent translations of what it is to be a human being; how our experiences shape our brains; how behaviour communicates; and how we are all on the same journey.

Duncan Roberts is a headteacher in Hertfordshire with a keen interest in mental health and how this more generally relates to the human condition and his responsibilities as a primary headteacher. His research leads him to – currently – conclude that his own wellbeing depends on the wellbeing and success of others – on the success of the community. On a deeper level, an effective community is built on effective relationships which require a shared language to support a shared understanding of each other. These ideas inform and impact on his approach to leading a school community and also support his research into Education focusing on Ordinary Language Philosophy. He is currently working towards a PhD in Education at the Institute of Education.

Duncan took part in a conference in April 2019 entitled “Resilience” the biology of stress and the science of hope, where the Watford and Three Rivers Families First Partnership’s aim was to share new Mental Health knowledge about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Felliti et al, 1998 study and will be sharing some of his knowledge and experience about the research and programme.

Attendees will receive an Attendance Certificate for 3 hours after the event.
