The Faculty of Education and the Childhood Social Adjustment Research and Intervention Group (GRISE) were very well represented at the 24th edition of the Occasional Temperament Conference (OTC) which took place from 5 to 7 October in Orford. Several researchers and student researchers at UdeS shared their results, drawing inspiration from the results of international colleagues!

We are delighted to be able to host this international event for the first time in Quebec and Canada. The participation of many Quebec researchers, including several members of the Faculty of Education and GRISE, demonstrates the growing interest of our research community in temperament and is intended to recognize its importance for human development and children’s academic and social adjustment. .
