During the last two weeks, two new research assistants joined the Chair’s team: Amélie Bernier Girard and Marie-Philippe Dubuc. Specifically, the two joined the team of the DAMIA project (demande d’aide en contexte de maltraitance et d’intimidation chez les aînés).
Amélie is an undergraduate student in social work at the University of Sherbrooke. She will work on updating the literature review. Marie-Philippe is a psychosocial practitioner who worked at DIRA-Estrie as the coordinator of the project Je prends ma place which aimed to elaborate and distribute an awareness tool about intimidation towards older adults. Her expertise will be useful to distribute the practice guide created as part of the DAMIA project.
The third new member is Camille Allard Lachapelle, a masters students in social work at the University of Sherbrooke who wishes to write her essay under the direction of Marie Beaulieu. The targeted thematic will be countering ageism, specifically establishing spaces for intergenerational dialogue for LGBTQ people.
The Chair‘s members wishes to welcome them!
