Portrait Esther McSween-Cadieux



Esther Mc Sween, B.Sc. Honor, étudiante au Ph. D.

Interest in discovering individuals, whatever their color, language and beliefs, led me to a doctorate in research and intervention in clinical psychology. Homelessness, multiculturalism and feminist causes interest me more specifically. Furthermore, as a psychosocial intervener in various community organizations for several years, I have often noticed the gap that exists between research and practice. I therefore decided to write my thesis on knowledge transfer in order to know why reliable results of research are underused and to identify strategies that could promote their use.


Areas of activity linked to transfer:

  • Knowledge brokerage
  • Community intervention
  • International health
