Axis director: Dr. Georges Tarabulsy, Laval University.
The well-being and health of young children largely depends on the well-being and ability of their parents to create stimulating and warm developmental contexts. This axis aims to set up and evaluate psychosocial interventions in order to ensure the establishment of adequate family contexts for development and health.
Interventions target psychosocially vulnerable families who are referred to public services or via clinics for monitoring specific medical conditions. Interventions are co-constructed with community and scientific partners brought together by Dr. Tarabulsy.
