Natalie Castellanos Ryan, PhD, Université de Montréal

Dans le contexte actuel du débat autour de la légalisation du cannabis au Canada, le Centre de recherche du CHU Sainte-Justine, affilié à l’Université de Montréal, a organisé une journée de conférences scientifiques le 5 avril 2016 sur le thème «Cannabis et santé des jeunes: qu’en dit la science?».

Profile

Research expertise

Ma recherche porte sur l'étude :

1) du développement de la toxicomanie et les troubles de santé mentale,

2) des facteurs de risque partagés entre les troubles de santé mentale, en particulier les troubles extériorisés, et

3) leur prévention.

Intérêts plus spécifiques comprennent comment les déficits d'autorégulation (l'impulsivité), ainsi que le développement pubertaire et cognitif, prédisent les problèmes de toxicomanie et la comorbidité psychopathologique chez les jeunes, et comment la personnalité et les facteurs environnementaux sont impliqués dans ces associations.

Biography

Natalie Castellanos-Ryan est chercheuse au CHU Sainte-Justine de Montréal et professeure adjointe à l'École de psychoéducation, Université de Montréal. Auparavant, elle était stagiaire postdoctorale au Centre de recherche du CHU Sainte-Justine et au Département de psychiatrie, Université de Montréal (2010-2014). Elle a complété son doctorat à l'Institut de psychiatrie, King’s College London (2009), où une grande partie de son travail était centré sur la mise en œuvre et l'évaluation d'une approche ciblant les facteurs de risque de la personnalité pour la prévention ou l’intervention précoce de la consommation de drogues et d'autres problèmes de comportement à l'adolescence.
