RESEARCH INTERESTS

Youth Engagement
- Factors that initiate and maintain involvement, as well engagement-related outcomes
- Program development and evaluation
- Children's rights

Social development
- shyness
- friendship
- social cognition, including children's and adults' theories of shyness

The overall direction of my research program is to understand the development of social competence in children and youth, with a special focus on the roles of parents, peers, and activity involvement. I am a co-investigator in a large longitudinal study of the role of friendships and parent-child relationships in adolescence. In addition, as research director of the Centre for Excellence of Youth Engagement, I have been involved in studies focused on better understanding the process of youth involvement and strategies for promoting greater youth participation in activities and organizations. I have a particular interest in the role of youth engagement in the development of social competence and adjustment, especially among socially withdrawn youth. Further information about this Canadian Centre of Excellence and its activities can be found at http://www.tgmag.ca/centres/.
