The Department of Applied Psychology & Human Development is home to a high concentration of counselling, developmental, school and clinical psychology research, led by faculty who are experts in their field. 

APHD faculty have active research labs and regularly present at prestigious academic conferences such as the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference, the annual Canadian Psychological Association conference, and others. Faculty also regularly participate in visiting scholar programs and deliver lectures across the globe.

This year we are looking forward to developing large-scale international projects that address the emerging issues concerning mental health, well-being and education.
