Katrina Abela: SSHRC Recipient

A huge congratulations to our Strong Families doctoral student, Katrina Abela, on being awarded the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D).

Katrina is currently working under the supervision of Dr. Andrea Gonzalez within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University. Katrina’s research focuses on how preventative intervention can be implemented to help children regulate their emotions and reduce related internalizing and externalizing problem behaviours. Katrina is honoured to have been awarded the SSHRC CGS-D scholarship as it will enable her to generate research promoting the development of accessible programming intended to foster positive child-rearing practices, adaptive emotion self-regulation strategies and adjustment in children, and improve the psychological wellbeing of children and families.

The objective of the Canada Graduate Scholarships – Doctoral (CGS-D) program is to promote continued excellence in Canadian research by rewarding and retaining high-caliber doctoral students at Canadian institutions. By providing support for a high-quality research training experience to awardees, the CGS-D program strives to foster impacts within and beyond the research environment.
