Spotlight on the Science of Early Adversity

At the Anna Freud National Centre for Children & Family, we are committed to supporting children and families to recover from childhood adversity and trauma, and to finding new ways of preventing mental health problems from arising.

The Anna Freud Learning Network launched its spotlight on Childhood Adversity and Trauma with a focus on 'The Science of Early Adversity'.
