Objectives and program

The Canadian Research Chair in Family Psychosocial Health aims to construct and validate explanatory models of family psychosocial health during the perinatal period and of associated factors, and seeks to construct, implement and evaluate innovative intervention models with respect to family psychosocial health promotion and problem prevention. To ensure these objectives are reached, an innovative plan has been put in place, illustrated by the following diagram:
