Introduction

Dr. Delphine Collin-Vézina is the Director of the Centre for Research on Children and Families at McGill University. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and an Associate Professor at the McGill School of Social Work and an Associate Member in the Department of Pediatrics. She held the Tier II Canada Research Chair in Child Welfare from 2008-2018 and is now holding the Nicolas Steinmetz and Gilles Julien Chair in Community Social Pediatrics. She leads the research group on Social Responses to Complex Trauma (SR/CT) at McGill University.

Her program of research seeks to better understand the impact of adverse and traumatic life events in the lives children and youth, as well as their experiences with services geared towards them. She aims to promote and implement social responses which are better suited to meet the needs of this often marginalized population and their families. Her mission is realized through research across three axes:

(1) Trauma-informed care implemented in different settings, such as child protection agencies, correctional services, and schools;

(2) Children’s rights-based approaches, through community social pediatrics centres;

(3) Best practices in the identification and responses to child sexual abuse across systems, and particularly within child protection services.

Her collaborators include: Health and Social Services agencies across the province of Quebec, the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Dr Julien Foundation, the Love of Reading Foundation, community non-profit organizations (Boscoville, Ometz Agency, La Traversée), and school boards in Quebec and Ontario.
