In the second year of my bachelor’s program in psychoeducation, professor Robert Pauzé introduced me to a new way of looking at adjustment. The notion that to understand an individual’s adjustment we need to think, not only about their characteristics, but also, the human systems within which he or she evolves has never left me. In the course of their development, evolution and life events, families, like adolescents, are subject to multiple demands for adjustment and adaptation.

My research interests centre on adequately assessing the factors that contribute to or impede the adjustment of children and families and identifying their needs. My work as a crisis worker with families is related to my interest in intervention processes and the impacts of programs that can lead to more successful crisis intervention. More recently, this interest in adjustment and transitions has turned to the study of student mental health and stress.
