Research Project: Improving Outcomes for Children in Care: A Collaborative Approach

PDF file Download the PDF file

Attention Manitoba School Counsellors!

If yes, I’d love to hear from you. I am a practicing school counsellor and a master’s level student in the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Education, Counselling Psychology program. I am currently completing my thesis, entitled Improving Outcomes for Children in Care: A Collaborative Approach, under the supervision of Dr. Virginia Tze (assistant professor in the Department of Educational Administration, Foundations and Psychology, University of Manitoba.)

Upon expression of interest in the study, potential participants will be asked to describe their professional backgrounds, including grade levels (early, middle or senior years) and areas serviced (for example, urban, rural or Northern) to ensure a diverse representation of experiences within the study. Identities of participants will be kept confidential. Research findings will be shared with the First Nations Family Advocate Office, and their feedback will be included in the final project.

If you would like to learn more about the study, please contact Megan Donald at donaldm3@myumanitoba.ca for more information.
