Areas of research
Research projects at the Centre de recherche de l'IPPM focus on four major themes. However, considering the interdisciplinary aspect of its research, each project inevitably has a positive impact on the others.
- First theme
Development of assessment tools and methodologies applied to the study of mental disorders and violent behaviour.
- Second theme
Study of the clinical, psychosocial and environmental factors related to mental disorders and violent behaviour.
- Third theme
Assessment of needs, services and practices related to mental disorders and violent behaviour.
- Fourth theme (in development)
Study of the neurochemical, neurological, neuropsychological and psychophysiological aspects of violent behaviour.
