The GRISE has given itself the mission to produce useful knowledge for the continuum of interventions that are offered during the developmental periods of childhood, adolescence and transition to adulthood.

Our team

The GRISE brings together regular and associate researcher members, postdoctoral researcher members, graduate research students, interns and research staff. It is also home to four Canada Research Chairs (CRCs): one in placement and rehabilitation of adolescent girls and young women in difficulty (holder: Nadine Lanctôt); another in stigmatization and psychosocial development of youth (holder: Alexa Martin-Storey); a third in school readiness, inclusion of vulnerable populations and social adjustment (holder: Gabrielle Garon-Carrier); and a fourth in digital media use by children and its implications for promoting togetherness (holder: Caroline Fitzpatrick). Two teams are funded by the Research Team Support Program of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC). One is directed by Nadine Lanctôt (Team Rehabilitation Approaches for Youth with Adjustment Problems – RAYAP; 2022-2026) and the other one, by Mélanie Lapalme (Team for Research on Sex-/Gender-Based Behavioural Difficulties and Social Adjustment: Understanding the Risk and Protection Factors, Including the Impact of Services, That Model Youth’s Adjustment Pathways; 2020-2024).
