Nursing & Family Organizations

Au coeur des families [At the Heart of Families]

Giving birth, losing a child, immigrating and experiencing mental or physical health problems are crucial points in the life of a family. The Canadian Research Chair in Family Psychosocial Health and the Center for Research and Studies in Family intervention are devoted to gain a better understanding of such families’ experiences. This website is a showcase for our work. The various sections provide information for both students and professionals working with families, as well as for parents themselves. Together, we can make a difference with respect to the families with which we work. (Website in French, currently in the process of translation to English.)
