Wiltshire’s own parenting trauma specialist Jane Evans will be a keynote speaker at two major national events this month as her profile reaches new heights.

The 53-year-old mum from Sutton Benger, is one of the guest speakers at the prestigious Nursery 2 Primary Show 2015 on Friday April 24 and Saturday April 25 in Bournemouth.

Jane, who was an expert featured on Channel 5’s recent series My Violent Child, will be talking about how trauma can affect a child’s behaviour from birth.

She said: “It’s an honour to be asked to speak to primary school and early year’s teachers, educators and leaders at the go-to show for this sector.

“I will be sharing with delegates how having an understanding of how children are impacted by early trauma can transform lives and outcomes for vulnerable children”

Jane will be lining up to speak alongside other well known faces in the world of parenting and early years’ education including Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder of Kids’ Company and Michael Freeston, from the Pre School Learning Alliance.

A few days’ later she will be talking to members of the London Ambulance Service on how the trauma of domestic violence impacts mental health and can be detected in those they support as they go about their day-to-day job.

She said: “I want to talk with members of this vital emergency service about how trauma can show itself, especially in domestic violence situations – as the mental health implications and signs are not always obvious, especially in children.”

In the last two months, Jane, who will soon publish her second book to support traumatised children, has appeared on Channel 5 News and on the new O’Brien show on ITV1.
