Ash Lowenthal is a doctoral student in Social Work at McGill University. In 2018, she joined Dr. Delphine Collin-Vezina’s research team at the CRCF dedicated to evaluating the implementation of the Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC) framework in Québec.
She is interested in the link between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and intergenerational patterns of family violence. Her research explores attachment-based intervention models that target the parent-child relationship. She hopes to contribute to the development and implementation of programs that provide parents with the support and skills they need to transform cycles of trauma and foster their child’s healthy development. Her approach is rooted in the notion that to invest in a brighter future for all, we must invest in the care we provide to the next generation.
Ash has over a decade of experience working in social services, community mental health agencies, community development and social justice initiatives. In her clinical practice, she became specialized in working with marginalized youth and their families with complex needs.
She holds a Masters degree in Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University and a BA (Honours) in Gender Studies and International Development from the University of Guelph.
