SPEAKER:  Julie Walsh holds a Master’s in Social Work and has practiced child and family therapy for almost 15 years, working primarily with children, youth, and adults involved with Family Services.  Her focus on trauma, attachment, regulation, and reunification has led her to develop manuals, workshops, and training programs for a variety of government and non-profit agencies throughout Manitoba and Eastern Canada. In addition to her clinical practice, she uses her knowledge and experiences in working with families with complex needs to teach caregivers, professionals, and youth. Her work with families and professionals is grounded in the assumption that we are all doing the best we can, that we are all aspiring to do better, and that we are all continually evolving.


PRESENTATION:  Adverse Childhood Experiences; Understanding the impact of developmental trauma.              

The impact of early childhood trauma can have far reaching effects on an individual and community level. Within this workshop we explore the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on a child’s development and ways to enhance resilience. This workshop focuses on understanding how adverse childhood experiences can impact and shape a child’s behaviours, regulation, attachment, and overall wellbeing. The workshop aims to increase understanding and awareness by providing:

  • An explanation of the Adverse Childhood Experiences and Developmental Trauma
  • An overview of the neurobiology of trauma, and the implications this has on social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
  • Descriptions and examples of different trauma responses
  • Describing some common behaviours associated with developmental trauma and ways caregivers and service providers can support these.
  • An overview of Positive Childhood Experiences, and how to enhance these for children, youth, and families we support.
