Epigenetics – Current Findings and New Practice[POSTPONED]
This face-to-face interactive workshop follows LEADs successful Epigenetics – Not Fixed in Stone Event held in late 2019.
Workshop content will focus on three key areas: epigenetics as an expression of genes, how understanding this can inform our practice, including in an understanding of Protective Factors.
- Learn how epigenetics provides a framework for understanding how the expression of genes is influenced by experiences and the environment to produce individual differences in behaviour, cognition, personality, and mental health;
- Gain deeper understanding and increase confidence and skills linking epigenetics to your practice, in how you work with children, young people and families, and
- Identify protective factors that can be used in practice.
