Global Child McGill is a research group led by Dr. Myriam Denov that integrates diverse interdisciplinary perspectives on children and families affected by war and migration, specifically the following three key approaches:
- Arts-Based Approaches,
- Participatory Approaches, and
- Socioecological Approaches.
Through this Tri-Pillared Approach (Denov, Mitchell, Rabiau, Forthcoming), the research group bridges together a team of researchers, practitioners and students, while actively involving a group of war-affected youth as part of the research team, in order to impact research, policy, and practice.
The CRCF, led by Director Delphine Collin-Vézina, carries out leading research on programs and policies concerning youth and family services. The CRCF hosts 25 faculty members who run 30 different projects, and provides training to 40 graduate students yearly. It offers a unique platform for developing local, national, and international collaboration in academic and non-academic milieus. CRCF members are committed to pursuing research that aims to significantly impact the lives of children, youth, and families.
CREGÉS is a research centre facilitating a sharing of knowledge between the academic community and practice settings in health and social services. Our mission is to encourage, promote and disseminate research in social gerontology, and to support the development of leading-edge practices at CSSS Cavendish-CAU. Please contact Dr. Tamara Sussman or Dr. Shari Brotman for more information about the McGill office.
The McGill Domestic Violence Clinic offers unique practice opportunities to graduate students. Working with a diverse community, students will address issues of violence against women and provide counselling to individuals, couples, and families. The clinic also offers group and individual treatment for men who perpetrate intimate partner violence, and group and individual treatment to women who have experienced intimate partner violence. Students acquire skills in client assessment and therapy.
Founded by Professor James Torczyner, this program remains very active in the Middle East regions. In 2015, this program successfully supported 9 fellows from Palestine, Israel, Jordan and Syria for the MSW International Partnership Program (MSW IPP). This program strives to develop healthy communities and promote social justice in conflict zones in the Middle East.
The McGill Couple and Family Therapy Clinics (CFTC) include:
a) an on-site clinic which provided specialized training to students in the MScA CFT Program in working with couples dealing with complex developmental trauma as of January 2016
b) a clinic which is located within the Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry at the Jewish General Hospital.
The two clinics provide students with the opportunity to observe and participate in couple therapy research as well as providing external internship sites for graduate student training from the School’s MScA CFT program.
