Making Scotland the World’s First ACE- Aware Nation
We are delighted to announce that we will be co-hosting a national conference in 2018, in partnership with TIGERS Ltd.
Making Scotland the World’s First ACE-Aware Nation will help to boost the active conversations our country is now having about how to put the science of trauma and relationships at the heart of all our policies and practices.
How do we put connection at the heart of absolutely everything we do in Scotland? And how do we get this information to every single citizen of our country? These are the questions we’ll be asking in this national event, with seats available for more than 1000 of us.
Best news of all? Guess who is coming to help us think about creating that future? Dr Nadine Burke Harris! She’s gained an international reputation for her transformational work as founder of the Center for Youth Wellness, in San Francisco. Most Scots are likely to know her from her central role in the documentary Resilience, which has taken Scotland by storm in 2017.

The Divided Brain
The next film due to be screened by connected baby is The Divided Brain. This is the documentary inspired by the mind-altering book ‘The Master and his Emissary’, written by neuroscientist Iain McGilchrist. The film helps us get to grips with McGilchrist’s theory about how modern life is changing the way human brains function – and how that has gone on to change our very society.
The film features interviews with actor John Cleese of Monty Python fame, neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor of TED Talks fame, pioneering neuroscientist Dr. Michael Gazzaniga, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and Aboriginal elder Dr. Leroy Little Bear. Our team at connected baby is keen to bring this film to the UK public, just as soon as the production team releases it later in 2017.
Here’s the trailer, to give you a taste of the film:
