Family Mediation Canada – What Mediators Need to Know - The Effect of Early Experiences on Brain Development, Behaviour, and Life-long Health
Presenter: Dr. Nicole Sherren
Separation and divorce is stressful for everyone involved, especially when something as personal as family relationships are at stake. Scientific research indicates that children who are exposed to chaotic, unpredictable, or abusive home environments – what is often referred to as toxic stress – are at risk for poorer outcomes in school and can grow into adults with greater interpersonal relationship difficulties as well as physical and mental health problems. This information has profound implications for all of the policies, programs, and services that support parents and children through family restructuring. In this webinar, you will learn how brains are built: what kind of experiences promote healthy brain architecture, what kind of experiences derail it, and how to build the foundations of resilience in children and families.
