Social-Emotional Development and Intervention
Home People Research Publications Teaching Getting Involved
Having a strong interest in well-being across development, I have volunteered with a senior community care organization to promote building social connections to combat isolation as well as with various children’s events as both a planner and activity facilitator. Starting in the summer of 2016, I became a research assistant and ROP student in the Relationships and Well-being Lab, investigating how couples navigate the transition to parenthood. Childhood is perhaps the most intriguing stage of life, and given the opportunity, I always elect to spend my time in the company of children over others and have noticed the different ways in which they maneuver their own special world. I hope to gain insight into why children develop aggressive and antisocial behaviour as a member of this lab and eventually go on to practice intervention strategies as a Mental Health Counselor or Clinical Psychologist.
