Doctor of Social Work and Bachelor of Laws, I have been a professor of social work at UQAC since 2006, where I teach social deviance, intervention with children and adolescents, family intervention and research methodology. I am a regular researcher at the Centre de Recherche Universitaire sur les Jeunes et les Familles (CRUJeF), the Centre de Recherche Jeunes, Familles, Réponses Sociales (JEFAR) and the Réseau Inondations InterSectoriel du Québec (RIISQ). This triple affiliation has led me, for several years, to take an interest in the adaptation of children, adolescents, young adults and families in different situations of adversity, specifically in the context of youth protection and following natural and technological disasters. My work is to give a voice to these populations, from a perspective centred on their strengths and recognizing their agency.
I am involved in different practice settings (youth centres, adult education centres, community organizations, elementary and secondary schools, etc.) in order to understand the realities of youths and families and assess the impact of innovative interventions aimed at them.
Funded by several granting agencies (e.g., CRSH, IRSC, FRQ), my work has given rise to numerous publications and conferences and has had significant benefits for the communities concerned. With a focus on the next generation of scientists, I am also very involved in academic pedagogy and in the supervision of graduate students. I am also the recipient of three awards for excellence in teaching, namely the Minister’s Prizes for Higher Education (2022), the 3M National Teaching Fellowship (2022), as well as the Prix d’Excellence en Enseignement du Réseau des UQ, Achievement component (2021).
