Anick Desrosiers is a PhD candidate at McGill University's School of Social Work, under the supervision of Katherine Maurer. She is the recipient of FRQSC and Trudeau Foundation doctoral Fellowships. With and for the homeless people, and in support of field workers, she commits, through an ethnographic approach, to furthering our collective understanding of the impacts of the traumatic life courses that precede and follow the experience of life on the street, that they may be better taken into account. Building upon her intimate, professional, and academic experience of life on the streets, Anick has established and led a community of practice in mental health and homelessness, as well as a psychotherapeutic outreach program for people experiencing homelessness. She currently accompanies unsheltered women at Montreal's La rue des Femmes.
