Relationships Matter Research
We commissioned Dr Sinéad Hanafin, a scholar of the European Academy of Nursing Science, a Visiting Research Fellow at Trinity and managing director of the research consultancy company, Research Matters, to research the importance of relationships and the effect they have on our health and wellbeing. Dr Hanafin’s report ‘Relationships Matter’ uses national data and research sources to present an overview of relationships in Ireland throughout the life cycle, from infancy through to relationships in later life. It includes a review of relationships in the workplace and community, as well as addressing the topic of adverse relationship experiences.

Adverse Childhood Experiences: 50 reasons to support relationships in practice
‘Adverse Childhood Experiences: 50 reasons to support relationships in practice’ is a document structured around the five core themes which emerged from an audit of our facilitated screenings of the award-winning documentary, ‘Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope’.
This evidence-based, multifaceted document by Dr Margaret O’ Rourke, Dr Maeve Hurley, Dr Nicola O’ Sullivan and Ms Donna Hennessy presents a range of information, data and knowledge, along with a comprehensive reference and resources and tools in appendices, that we believe can support professionals to open up new ways of thinking about what we can do to become more aware and compassionate towards children and adults with histories of ACEs and toxic stress.
