Professors Nicolas Berthelot and Roxanne Lemieux, Project STEP directors, published a “Viewpoint” this week in the prestigious journal JAMA Pediatrics. In their opinion, despite the fact that thousands of articles are published each year on interpersonal trauma, still too few studies are aimed at evaluating intervention and prevention programs. Such research is necessary in order to act directly on this public health issue. Julia Garon-Bissonnette, doctoral student with the team, also participated in the publication.
