At the end of 2015, Marie Beaulieu and three members of the Chair, Marie Crevier, Monia D'Amours and Luisa Diaz published an article in the prestigious Journal of Elder Abuse and Neglect. In the article "Financial Exploitation of Older Women: A Case Analysis Using the Struggle for Recognition Theory", Marie Crevier collects a situation of mistreatment in the framework of her doctoral thesis in Gerontology at the University of Sherbrooke. The team conducted its analysis based on Honneth’s Struggle for Recognition Theory and its three central components: primary relationships, legal relations and community of value.

At the beginning of 2016, Caroline Pelletier, social worker and a doctoral student in Gerontology at the University of Sherbrooke, and Marie Beaulieu published an article in the Revue Intervention of the Quebec College of the Social Workers and Family Therapists (OTSTCFQ). It is entitled "Rôles et défis actuels des travailleurs sociaux en gérontologie dans le réseau public au Québec" (Current Roles and Challenges of Social Workers in Gerontology in the Quebec Public Network). The authors discuss the role, as well as some of the issues and challenges of social practitioners working with seniors in the context of the Integrated Health and Social Services Centres (CISSS) or the Integrated University Health and Social Services Centres known under the acronym CIUSSS.
