Tammy’s approach is holistic and strength-based – focusing on what we as caretakers, parents, and professionals can do vs. stigmatizing children who are struggling. Various facets of the child’s environment will be explored that can contribute to a child’s emotional struggles.

Children with trauma can present significant challenges and they often display patterns of behaviour that can strain the relationship between the child and those caring for them. This presentation explores the impact of trauma on neurological development and how this presents in children’s behaviours. The impact on the attachment system is also examined, as will the role of relationships in healing and growth.

fostering emotion regulation in youth

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Emotional regulation is a key component that supports our overall health and well-being. As our capacity to regulate our emotions increases, so does our ability to engage positively with all parts of our world. This had the impact of enhancing our ability to communicate our needs, limits, and boundaries in a clear and effective way. Strengthening a child’s emotional vocabulary and supporting them to develop emotional regulation skills is an important part of ensuring that our children are growing with the skills and knowledge they will need for healthy relationships at all stages of life. This presentation aims to provide practical information for caregivers and professionals about the importance of self-regulation in both ourselves and the children we are supporting, as well as to focus on strategies that we can use with the children we are supporting to enhance their development of self-regulation skills.

attachment - the power of relationship

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Attachment is a fundamental human need; the desire to connect, belong, and to be seen drives nearly all human behavior. This presentation speaks to both the psychology and the science that underlies the principal of attachment. It inspires those who care for children to take intentional action that fosters both resiliency and healing in children through this powerful dance of connection.

Thank you so much for sharing your kindness, understanding and knowledge with us yesterday. With a 4 month old at home I was feeling disconnected with my 9 year old son. I found that we were just butting heads over pretty much everything. We used to have such a close relationship before baby, and I felt that no matter what I did I was just pushing him away. Your deep knowledge about the anatomy of a child’s brain helped me understand my son better and relate to him in a way I thought was not possible prior to this workshop. Thank you for giving me the tools that will help me get my little boy back and help him develop into a resilient and healthy teenager
