Has your child or a child you are supporting experienced physical or sexual abuse? Exposed to the foster care system? Suffered through a tragic event? Experienced neglect? Witnessed or experienced violence? Endured extreme bullying? Or been impacted by a high-conflict divorce?

Trauma can significantly impact a child, and those caring for them are often left with questions about how to best help. Children with trauma can present significant challenges. They often display patterns of behaviour that can strain the relationship between the child and those caring for them. During this seminar we will explore the impact of trauma on neurological development and how this presents in children’s behaviours. The impact on the attachment system will also be examined, as will the role of relationship in healing and growth. Strategies to support children following experiences of trauma will be presented, giving attendees concrete ways in which they can support the children in their lives and care for themselves.

This workshop aims to offer practical information to caregivers and professionals on why certain behaviours may be present, and how they can support their children in moving towards growth and healing.


  • Examine the impact of trauma on neurological development
  • Explore the impact of trauma on attachment systems and relational patterns
  • Foster a greater understanding of behavioural patterns commonly associated with traumatic experiences.
  • Develop tools and strategies to support the children in
  • Learn about appropriate treatment options available based on the type of trauma a child has experienced and the timing of the incident
  • Highlight the importance of self-care for those who are supporting children that have experiences of trauma

    I loved the logical, relatable way the information was developed, the practical examples given, the videos that expanded on the information, the warm, enthusiastic presentation style

  2. DB

    It was so powerful to learn and understanding how trauma impacts our children and the strategies that go along with it. It was amazing. I joined two separate webinars because of it 🙂

  3. Anonymous

    I found a part of me that was lost nearly 40 years

  4. Lori Renton, Executive Director Bright Beginnings

    I appreciated the sincere, authentic, engaging, honest and powerful messages. It was real and enlightening. I did not want to workshop to end.

  5. Saleha, Z MSc. (Psych)

    I attended this workshop for a personal reason (child trauma survival myself) and it was a soul cleansing for me! I was crying (good cry though) throughout the whole seminar! Thank you Tammy for your compassion and your high level of sensitivity!

    What was most helpful for me was the instructor’s explanations. Her presentation in general was very easy to understand. Things that may have been confusing she broke down, so we understood. She was kind, passionate about her work, and her presentation so it was very easy to soak in the information

  7. K.P

    Loved the facilitator; she was understanding and informative !

  8. A.D

    I loved the presenter’s ease, style and presentation methods. There were many great “take home” strategies that I will be able to use both in my professional work and at home. My kids are 12 and 10 and I wished I’d been able to attend this training when they were toddlers!

    It was very helpful to understand the perspective from the child and how something can trigger an emotion that you may not even realize and how trauma can carry forward into adult years.

  10. Quinn C.

    The points were explained with enthusiasm in great detail. I felt that the speaker was very relatable as a parent/caregiver, as well as a professional. Good humor. And aside from all the great info we received from the workshop, we also left with a ton of extra links and lists of authors to look into.

    Thank you for offering this workshop. I felt like it tied up some loose ends and gave me more perspective on my life. For that, I will be forever grateful.
