We have a number of subgroups within the larger Child and Adolescent Group.
Communication with Children about Life Threatening Conditions
One of the most daunting challenges is to tell a child that they or their parent has a life threatening condition. Our work focusses on developing evidence based guidelines to empower healthcare professionals, parents and children to navigate these emotionally difficult conversations.

Team Intervene: Focus on interventions for adolescent populations

The Oxford Brain Story
Our team is working in partnership with the Palix Foundation and Alberta Family Wellness Initiative to share knowledge about the science of brain development for families and professionals. The Story aims to articulate the intergenerational cycle of adversity within families and how we can use our scientific understanding to improve outcomes for children and adults in the future.
