Seating is limited; please RSVP your attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 19, 2018.
Dr. Naomi Andrews is a postdoctoral fellow at Mothercraft's Breaking the Cycle program and the LaMarsh Centre for Child and Youth Research at York University. She obtained her Ph.D. from the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University. Her research has focused on children and adolescents' involvement in problematic social behaviours, including bullying, aggression, victimization, and delinquency. From the lens that these problem behaviours are inherently social phenomena, she has focused on disentangling the complex social relationship processes that underlie problem behaviours. Currently, she is working on transferring this relational focus to an applied setting through, for one, working on Building Connections: Supporting Community-Based Programs to Address Interpersonal Violence and Child Maltreatment. She is interested in better understanding how healthy and unhealthy relationships impact children’s development, and how relationship focused interventions can be used to support at-risk populations.
