10:15-12:30 – (DOORS OPEN 9:30)

ADVERSITY, RESILIENCE AND HUMAN RIGHTS

The first session of the day is a screening of the must-see documentary ‘Resilience: the biology of stress and the science of hope’, followed by a panel discussion/audience Q&A. This trail-blazing American film looks at the negative impact of childhood adversity, and what people can do to change things for the better. In keeping with the Declaration Festival theme, our focus will be on the human rights aspects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and what’s happening in Scotland.

Chaired by Lucy Mulvagh of the ALLIANCE, a lively and stimulating panel discussion will follow. We are delighted to be joined by Juliet Harris (Together – Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights), Kirsty Giles (Violence Reduction Unit), and SallyAnn Kelly (Aberlour Child Care Trust).
