Research Focus


My research focuses on investigating the role of emotion regulation, attitudes and beliefs on the development and intergenerational transmission of psychopathology. In addition, I examine how symptoms of mental health problems might interfere with self-regulated learning in a group context and ultimately, with educational achievement. Multiple factors, such as parenting, may affect children’s emotion regulation. I investigate the role of parental socialization of emotions on the use of emotion regulation strategies in children. In addition to the ongoing research conducted in my laboratory, my research team has created an emotion regulation school-based program, Healthy Minds, Healthy Schools, as well as a complementary parenting program called Parenting C.A.R.E. My work aims to advocate for the implementation of school-based mental health practices and philosophies as well as to promote mental health literacy.

My work aims to advocate for the implementation of school-based mental health practices and philosophies as well as to promote mental health literacy. My more recent work also focuses on identifying indicators of mental health and well-being (as well as risks factors) in health care workers as well as teachers/educators. The goal is to assist institutions and organizations in promoting positive mental health and well-being in the workplace which will encourage early disclosure of mental health struggles and destigmatize mental health disorders among Canada’s most challenging workplace environments.
