TRAINING OPPORTUNITY: Emotional Regulation with Children & Youth: Building Your Toolbox



As neuroscience continues to reveal the importance of developing greater and greater capacities for emotional regulation, it is essential that clinicians understand the biology behind regulation and how to develop it within the children they work with.  This full day workshop is designed to help clinicians understand exactly what regulation is and is not, the biological mechanisms in the brain and nervous system allowing for regulation, and learn practical tools for developing a child’s regulatory capacity.  Clinicians will also learn what it takes and how to become the external regulator in the relationship- the most important tool to have in the toolbox.

In this workshop, Lisa makes the growing field of neuroscience accessible and relevant to clinicians of all backgrounds.  This workshop caters to both experienced and new clinicians, and is applicable to private practice, agency and school settings.  Clinicians will leave this workshop with a powerful new perspective on emotional regulation and ideas that they can take straight into their next session.

Sex and the Law: Teachings about Consent

Sex and the Law: Teachings about Consent

We are happy to announce that Cameray has successfully acquired funding for Jessica Wollen (certified sexual health educator and BC teacher) and the Burnaby School District to partner on delivering a program around the legal aspects of consent. Jessica is working with students to clarify what consent looks like, sounds like, and feels like – and the legal implications. The intention is preventing sexual assault before it occurs, and to foster healthy relationships between youth.

This Spring, Jessica is teaching in many secondary schools in Burnaby and New West. She is working collaboratively to develop a scope and sequence to support physical health education teachers in delivering the new physical and health education curriculum, which includes sexual health lessons and material.

If you are interested in this program coming to your school, contact

Jessica is one of the leading sexual health educators in this area in the Lower Mainland. To read more about her work, please visit
