In-Person - Compassion Prison Project Conference - Glasgow
@Crowne Plaza Glasgow, an IHG Hotel Congress Road Glasgow
Scotland is experiencing a significant shift in their approach to helping those in the justice system better understand the impacts of early childhood trauma.
They have an aim for Scotland to be the safest country in the world, and believe they can achieve this aim through Smart Justice. Smart Justice includes tackling the underlying causes of crime and offering people who have committed crime a programme of recovery and support, so that they are better able to contribute when they return to their families and communities. It also means a collaborative approach between health, education, social work, policing, and courts.

The conference will be an opportunity to hear about the work of Fritzi Hortsman, founder of Compassion Prison Project (CPP) in the USA. Since 2019, Fritzi has been engaging prison residents in her work to understand their own childhood trauma, and by sharing the scientific research that shows the impact of ACEs on the developing brain. CPP has launched their new 12-part video series and workbook programme, entitled Trauma Talks, in prisons across the U.S. and around the globe.
