Youth Engagement

  • Factors that initiate and maintain involvement, as well engagement-related outcomes
  • Program development and evaluation
  • Children’s rights

Social development

  • Shyness
  • Friendship
  • Social cognition, including children’s and adults’ theories of shyness

The overall direction of my research program is to understand the development of social competence in children and youth, with a special focus on the roles of parents, peers, and activity involvement. I am a co-investigator in a large longitudinal study of the role of friendships and parent-child relationships in adolescence.

In addition, as research director of the Centre for Excellence of Youth Engagement, I have been involved in studies focused on better understanding the process of youth involvement and strategies for promoting greater youth participation in activities and organizations. I have a particular interest in the role of youth engagement in the development of social competence and adjustment, especially among socially withdrawn youth.
