She has extensively researched early learning, brain development, the impact of trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences  and the importance of early oral language development.

She is trained in presenting several evidence based parenting programs which include "Circle of Security", and "Tuning in to Kids", "Dads Tuning in to Kids", "Tuning in to Teens", "Circle of Security in the Classroom" and "Bringing up Great Kids". Chris has co-designed many workshops and parenting programs with community groups.

Chris believes parents should be given good information in a way that is easy to understand so they can make informed decisions about their parenting.
