Social Justice and Gender Issues

Our Child and Teen Studies Lab is fortunate to situate itself in a university context that facilitates our pan-disciplinary interests, concerns and responsibilities as psychologists. The following initiatives represent some of our work in collaboration with political scientists, social workers and gender studies scholars. This research responds to our mandate as social scientists to forge links with current social issues of the day with a consideration of equity, diversity and inclusion.
