SPEAKER: Scientist, author, professor, dog musher, and founder of the Alaska Family Violence Prevention Project, Dr. Linda Chamberlain is an internationally recognized keynote speaker and advocate on domestic violence, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), brain development and trauma, and the amazing adolescent brain. Known for her abilities to translate science into practical strategies with diverse audiences, she conveys a message of hope.

Certified in several practices to promote resilience, self-regulation and well-being, she demonstrates simple skills that can be taught to children, adolescents and families. Dr. Chamberlain teaches at the University of Alaska and earned public health degrees from Yale School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University. The author of numer-ous national curricula and the Amazing Brain Series, she recently released an online toolkit on Addressing the Inter-sections Between Domestic Violence and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
