Dr. Shelley Hymel


Dr. Hymel’s research addresses the interface of social and academic functioning in school-age children, with the goal of understanding the processes involved in youth social development and using this information to develop effective means of supporting high-risk youth in educational settings. Most of her work is conducted through collaborative partnerships with local school and community agencies, as part of the Centre for Youth Social Development, a virtual centre whose mandate is “to support the social and emotional development of children in schools and communities, one child at a time, and one classroom at a time, through resilience-based, multi-systemic and inclusive interventions that consider the child, the family and the classroom/school context”
