Epigenetics can provide us with an insight into who we are and how we behave. 

In the last 10 years, epigenetics has assisted many people to work in a far more targeted way with clients.  It is especially helpful when we work with children and their families.  Find out why this aspect of  science is so relevant to your work.

This presentation will expand the concept of epigenetics to explore the interconnecting areas of the physical, social, spiritual and political contexts of people’s lives. We will look at how trauma affects all aspects of human existence, and conclude with an exploration of multi-faceted healing.
