Although the comorbidity between conduct problems (CP) and depressive symptoms (DS) is associated with a host of negative outcomes, the factors, such as temperament, that might explain this comorbidity in school-aged boys and girls are poorly understood. This study compared elementary school children presenting co-occurring CP and DS to children wi...

Cette étude évalue, auprès de 48 élèves de six et sept ans, si l’exposition à des représentations atypiques de triangles et de rectangles via la littérature jeunesse facilite la reconnaissance de ces figures. Au post-test, les élèves identifient adéquatement un plus grand nombre de rectangles et moins de figures distractrices. Le sous-groupe de fil...
Article
Bullying perpetration and victimization have often been linked to depressive symptoms (Conners-Burrow et al., 2009; Klomek et al., 2008; Ttofi et al., 2011). However, several personal and social factors could interact to explain the relationship between these variables. The purpose of the present study was to explore the applicability of a longitud...
Article
Introduction Childhood conduct problems (CP) are characterized by maladaptive externalizing behaviors and are linked with poor sleep. CP are highly comorbid with other psychological problems, including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and depression, which are also associated with disturbed sleep. The present study examined if childhood CP...
Article
School dropout can be an ongoing process of academic failure and disengagement starting as early as elementary school. Given the importance of early identification of risk factors, the present study examines (a) whether early conduct problems and depressive symptoms predict a higher risk of school dropout, (b) whether depressive symptoms moderate t...
Article
Background While childhood externalizing, internalizing and comorbid problems have been associated with suicidal risk, little is known about their specific associations with suicidal ideation and attempts. We examined associations between childhood externalizing, internalizing and comorbid problems and suicidal ideation (without attempts) and attem...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction Children with conduct problems (CP) exhibit problematic externalizing behaviors that violate the rights of others and/or societal norms, are likely to present with comorbid psychological problems, engage in high-risk behaviours during adolescence and in turn, display poorer prospective health in adulthood. However, little known about t...
Poster
Despite the high prevalence and the negative consequences of conduct problems (CP) and depressive symptoms (DS) comorbidity, factors that could explain this comorbidity in children, such as temperament, are still poorly understood (Beauchaine & Chicchetti, 2016; McDougough-Caplan et al., 2018). Moreover, while previous findings support the relevanc...
Article
Le CBQ-SF (Children’s Behavior Questionnaire - Short Form, Putnam, Rothbart, 2006) permet d’évaluer le tempérament des enfants. L’objectif de cette étude est de valider une version canadienne francophone du CBQ-SF. L’échantillon compte 318 enfants âgés de 6 à 9 ans. Le tempérament a été évalué à deux reprises sur une période d’un an. Les problèmes...
Article
The Dual Failure Model suggests that peer victimization (social failure) and academic difficulties (academic failure) mediate the association between externalizing and later internalizing problems. The present study sought to better understand why children with externalizing problems develop later internalizing problems by testing the Dual Failure...

L’étude évalue les liens entre l’implication scolaire des parents d’enfants ayant présenté des problèmes de comportement extériorisés au primaire (PCE) et l’adaptation de ces jeunes à l’adolescence. Les parents et les enseignants ont rempli des questionnaires sur l’adaptation comportementale, scolaire et sociale de 383 adolescents (43,9 % de fil...

Introduction: Conduct problems (CP) refer to a variety of antisocial behaviors, including aggression, rule breaking, deceitfulness, destruction of others’ property, as well as comorbid defiance, and are considered early if present before age 10. Early CP, in comparison to adolescent-onset CP, is associated with worse physical and mental health outc...

Article
Youth with conduct problems present frequently depressive symptoms. Academic skills are thought to be a mediating variable by which conduct problems could lead to depressive symptoms. No studies have longitudinally compared this model among school-aged boys and girls with different levels of conduct problems. Cascade models were tested to examine t...
Article
Children with conduct problems are at greater risk for internalizing problems. The objectives of this study were to (1) examine trajectories of internalizing problems among children with and without clinically significant conduct problems during the transition to adolescence; and (2) identify how academic achievement, peer rejection, parent socioec...
Article
Despite the important increase in the prevalence of depression during adolescence, a low proportion of adolescent presenting elevated depressive symptoms receive school-based mental health services. Moreover, programs implemented in school settings often suffer of a less rigorous implementation, thus limiting their potential effectiveness. The iden...

This study investigated the relationship between the three DSM-5 categories of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) symptoms (irritable mood, defiant behavior, vindictive behavior) and anxiety/depression in girls and boys with conduct problems (CP) while controlling for comorbid child psychopathology at baseline. Data were drawn from an ongoing long...

Youth with conduct problems (CP) may experience high rates of depressive symptoms (DS). However, little is known about the direction of the longitudinal associations between CP and DS in this specific population. Although girls with CP appear at greater risk than boys for presenting comorbid depression, empirical research on gender differences in t...
Article
There is limited empirical research on the correlates of conduct problems (CP) and depression comorbidity during childhood. This study investigated 479 elementary school children (48.2% girls). It compared children with comorbidity to children with CP only, depression only, and control children on individual, academic, social, and family characteri...

Le décrochage scolaire a des conséquences dommageables de plusieurs ordres : intellectuelles pour les élèves qui ne développent pas les compétences attendues ; économiques pour la société qui a investi dans un potentiel non réalisé ; sociaux pour la collectivité qui ne sera pas enrichie d’apports de haut-niveau mais ce sont sans doute les conséquen...

La programmation de recherche de notre équipe porte sur les difficultés de comportement (DC) et l’adaptation sociale des filles et des garçons de l’enfance jusqu’à la transition à l’âge adulte. Elle met résolument l’accent sur les différences selon le sexe et, plus récemment, le genre.
Project
Les troubles de comportement qui surviennent dès l'enfance chez les filles peuvent entraîner d'importants problèmes de santé mentale et d’adaptation à l’adolescence et l’âge adulte. Malgré ces conséquences négatives, ces troubles précoces chez les filles n'ont fait l'objet que d’encore peu d’études pour comprendre leur évolution, les facteurs qui affectent leur persistance ou leur rémission et les liens qui les unissent aux problèmes de santé mentale; ce qui peut s'expliquer par leur plus faible prévalence dans la population féminine. Il n'en demeure pas moins que les connaissances qui guident le travail d'intervention se limitent souvent aux résultats d’études menées sur des garçons. Or, ces interventions apparaissent moins bien adaptées aux filles. Ce projet de recherche est à vérifier l’hypothèse que les troubles précoces de comportement ont une évolution et un impact plus négatifs chez les filles en raison des niveaux de risque individuels et de socialisation plus élevés associés initialement à leur présence. Cette recherche propose le suivi longitudinal jusqu’à la fin de l’adolescence de filles et de garçons identifiés au début de l’école primaire avec des troubles de comportement afin d'établir les différences selon le sexe dans les trajectoires de difficultés, les facteurs associés et les séquences développementales qui lient leurs troubles à d’autres problèmes de santé mentale. En plus de l'apport significatif aux connaissances, mettre en lumière ces différences est primordial pour la définition et l'adaptation des services de santé et des services sociaux offerts aux filles et aux garçons.
