Project Description

The research team focusing on the gender differences in conduct problems from  the Groupe de recherche et d’intervention sur les adaptations sociales de l’enfance (GRISE) at the Université de Sherbrooke conducts longitudinal research on the evolution of the problems conduct of girls and boys during childhood and adolescence (n = 744, 45% girls).
