Dr. Tina Montreuil, of our Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology (ECP), spoke to Le Devoir recently about anxiety in children.
Children seem to be increasingly anxious, and less equipped to deal with stress in their lives, Dr. Montreuil told Le Devoir in part for the article, "L’anxiété, un mal qui n’épargne pas les enfants", published May 10, 2018.
