Roots of Emotion-Focused School Support

After completing a PhD in Child and Clinical School Psychology at the University of Toronto - and informed by more than 10 years working with various school boards - Dr. Adele Lafrance sought to develop an effective and efficient model to increase the involvement of teachers and support staff in preventing and targeting mental health issues.  

Co-developer of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy, Dr. Lafrance created an adaptation for the school setting that actually reduces the stress of school staff rather than increasing their burden. 

Dr. Lafrance has since delivered various workshops and trainings targeted for parents, teachers, aides and mental health staff world-wide.
