Research program

The Research Unit on Children's Psychosocial Maladjustment (GRIP) investigates psychosocial maladjustment among children, from birth to adolescence, from a developmental perspective.

The unit is made up of researchers from the Université de Montreal, Université Laval, and McGill University.

Its research program is based on three complementary themes:

  • The first encompasses studies that describe and predict maladjustment in children. The main objective of this theme is to delineate the prevalence of maladaptation in a given territory, to describe the development of these problems, and to identify risk factors as well as protective factors.
  • The second research theme is focused on factors related to family and to factors in the environment, such as peers and the school setting.
  • The third research theme focuses on studying interventions aimed at preventing adjustment problems in the young.
