Welcome to the FamilyPsycle Lab!

FamilyPsycle Logo

The FamilyPsycle Lab takes a family-wide approach to understanding the multiple, complex influences on child development. Our program of clinical science considers the effects of adversity, social disadvantage, trauma, and technology on family relationships and developmental health.

Methodologically speaking, epidemiological and clinical research paradigms are utilized, in addition to dyadic and relational approaches to statistical modelling. We work closely with community health and social services in order to make sure our science reaches the people who make it possible!


The Child and Youth Refugee Research Coalition (CYRRC)'s new podcast series, The Refuge, brings together youth with refugee experience, academics, and community partners to discuss issues affecting refugee children, youth, and families in Canada. Check out the newest episode of The Refuge where FamilyPsycle Lab researcher Jean de Dieu Basabose and other guests offer perspectives on the most common mental health challenges faced by youth with refugee experience, coping mechanisms, and how to support refugee youth’s wellbeing.
