Presenter

  • Linda Uyeda

    Dr. Linda Uyeda is a family physician who works at several Fraser Health youth clinics and the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Her own personal journey into child development began 16 years ago with the birth of her first child. 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. After incorporating this information into her own family and medical practice with immense success, she has begun educating parents, counsellors, teachers, and physicians about what she has learned.
