Dr. Vanessa Lapointe and The ABCs of Childhood Mental Health:
Mental health has taken a central place in the minds of parents, caregivers, educators and other “big people” due to the significant number of children who are struggling. This workshop will explore the reasons for this struggle, the way mental health challenges typically present in children, and most importantly, what can be done to support children towards healthy development and actualizing their fullest potential.

I’m Dr. Vanessa, a Registered Psychologist, author, parenting educator, and mom to two. From my work with parents and children – and from being a mom – I have developed a keen understanding of the powerful connection between healthy child development and the parent-child or “big-person”- child relationship. Through this lens it is my experience that we can understand everything about the growing child from behavior to anxiety to brain development. And all the in-between stuff too. While the dominant pop-culture of child-raising has left so many big people feeling conflicted with how to grow up kids in the best possible way, I strive to come alongside with empowerment. It is my singular goal that parents, teachers, caregivers, and all the other big people are able to connect with their own expertise and intuition in finding a way through.
