SYNOPSIS


This webinar is part 1 of the CBABC Science-Informed Practice Series.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are a root cause of life-long health and social challenges for children and families across North America. The impacts of ACEs can influence how people respond to legal and everyday life challenges. The prevalence of ACEs in a person’s life can also lead to life-long health problems and extensive or complex care needs. Lawyers who work with children and families can benefit from learning about ACEs, and how to use tools to engage and build good working relationships with children and families who live with adverse impacts from ACEs.

This first session in our three-part CBABC Science-Informed Practice Series brings together a cross-sector panel of lawyers and medical professionals to provide education and training on ACEs, talk about the role of lawyers to address ACEs, and strategies to adapt some of your practice strategies to reduce ACEs.

She practiced full service from 1979 until 2009 when she transitioned into focused care on vascular protection, chronic pain and palliative care.

She has been involved in Continuing Professional Development locally, provincially and nationally. She became interested in the New Zealand Pegasus model of CPD which has demonstrable quality improvement measures and is one of the founding Board members of the Physician Data Collaborative which strives to link community physician EMRs for aggregate data collection for research and quality improvement through CPD. She was also involved in Accreditation of University Faculty of Medicine CPD Departments. (CACME)

She became a Physician Champion for the GPSC (General Practice Services Committee) PSP (Practice Support Program) in 2007 and assisted in the development and/or roll-out of numerous learning modules. She continues to collaborate with the UBC CPD Department in evolving small group learning modules for PSP. She has presented at local, provincial, national and international conferences on a variety of topics.

About Dr. Erika Cheng
Erika Cheng is a Family Physician who practices in remote communities with large First Nations populations. Her medical practice includes emergency, hospital, long-term care, palliative care, outreach, and community clinic settings, as well as having served as local medical director for the Bella Coola General Hospital for many years. Dr. Cheng also provides therapy for Complex Trauma and Dissociation, has basic training in EMDR, and has extensive experience in healthcare provider education in the field of trauma. As one of the founding Directors of “Beyond the Cycle of Trauma Institute” she has been heavily involved in training teachers, community support workers, adoptive parents, counsellors and healthcare providers to work more effectively with trauma survivors.



About Dr. Linda Uyeda
Dr Linda Uyeda obtained her medical degree and completed her family practice residency training at the University of British Columbia. She works at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital and several Fraser Health youth clinics. Her personal journey into the science of true healing began after her medical studies were over. 18 years ago, with the birth of her first child, she became interested in human development. Like many new parents, she felt confused about advice she was receiving from family and friends and turned to the scientific community for answers. She expanded her medical education to explore neuroscience, parenting, trauma, and attachment and was fascinated by what she found. An unexpected incident at work in 2015 combined with a family illness over the next several years, drove home the fact that nurturing resilience and compassion are key to wellbeing. After incorporating this information into her own parenting approach and her medical practice with great success, she has begun educating others about what she has learned.



About Nancy J. Cameron QC
Nancy works is a family lawyer, writer, and educator. Although spending years doing trial work, she believes that most families and children are best served by being supported to work together in resolving their family matters. For this reason, Nancy specializes in collaborative practice (also know as collaborative law) and mediation. Nancy also trains and teaches interdisciplinary collaborative practice, advanced negotiation, and collaborative practice subjects.

Nancy spent most of her twenties working with teenagers in group homes, and working and teaching in Early Childhood Education. In 2001 she was a member of the team that put together the first collaborative law training in British Columbia sponsored by the British Columbia Continuing Legal Education Society.
