Our applied research program is aimed at identifying the needs of children and families and effective strategies for intervention. Most research reports are available electronically on this website, reflecting our commitment to make information accessible. Previous projects include a study of youth-on-youth criminal violence, an evaluation of mediation for child protection cases, a study of children of women in prison, and an exhaustive review of research on children exposed to domestic violence. Types of research include: literature reviews to support recommendations on program development and refinement; qualitative studies of children and families; evaluation of intervention programs; and consultation on research design. Results are used to recommend program developments, policy initiatives, and future research directions.
