As a clinician, I provide collaborative care for immigrant and refugee children in multiethnic areas of Montreal. My research program complements this work by studying models of collaborative mental health care, prevention programs in schools and the impact of migration policies.
- Secondary traumas in the context of war and organized violence;
- Mental health of immigrants and refugees;
- Collaborative mental health care for children and youth;
- Creative expression in school programs;
- Migration policies and immigrant and refugee health.
