Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth: Brain Builders Lab Case Study
Author: Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction
Case study summarizes the Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth (Open Doors)’s Brain Builders Lab project. Open Doors, located in Lanark County, Ontario, already operates from an attachment-based, trauma-informed approach but the brain story adds evidence to why those approaches are important to their work. The Brain Builder wanted to orient Open Doors staff to the brain story to deepen their understanding of attachment-based, trauma-informed approaches. This case study outlines her project goals, knowledge mobilization activities, project outcomes and impact, as well as lessons learned and next steps.
