URegina launches new initiatives to support children, youth, caregivers during COVID-19

December 11, 2020
The University of Regina is launching new initiatives for the well-being of children and youth. A URegina researcher will receive $400K for the Northern Prairie Spirit Youth Cultural Continuity Project. Through the project, researchers will seek to understand issues of violence and bullying and develop culturally-sensitive prevention practices. URegina’s Child Trauma Research Centre has launched a Digital Connections Hub that will provide support to children, youth, families, and service-providers during the pandemic. These supports will include child well-being research and resources, access to content addressing the needs of children, and support tools for those working with children. The hub will allow service providers to share, access, and apply best practices in order to support young people based on evidence-based research. URegina (1) | URegina (2) (SK)
