Over the last 20 years we have begun to understand the complex interplay between genetics and environment and how chronic inflammation caused by toxic stress effects human development. Research has shown that toxic stress and adverse childhood experiences are linked with altered brain architecture (resulting in difficulties with impulse control and problem solving) as well as higher risk of developing diabetes, iscaemic heart disease and severe obesity.
As founder of EHCAP my vision is to take this knowledge into communities and into families currently experiencing adversity- sharing straight forward psycho education tools such as Dan Siegel's Hand Model metaphor for emotion regulation and John Gottman's Emotion Coaching relationship style.

We all move at differing paces through the phases of AWARENESS, ACCEPTANCE and APPLICATION into ADAPTATION of our resources. At your own pace, start to develop your own resources maintaining fidelity with scientific research (Shonkoff, Siegel, Gottman, Eagleman). The simplest way to do this is to reference www.mindfulemotioncoaching.co.uk
You MUST reference researchers in your slides and you MUST understand that you need copyright permission for images you use (in other words you cant just download images from the internet). In addition You Tube videos need to be streamed rather than downloaded.
We would love to know a bit about you - please let us know how we can work with you most effectively.
Very best wishes,
Dr Sarah Temple MRCGP
