Welcome to the Whole Family Lab!

whole family lab logoThe Whole Family 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!
