Mireille Joussemet

Booth SDT in Action: Parenting
Mireille Joussemet received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2004 from McGill University, where she conducted research in human motivation with Prof. Richard Koestner, guided by her passion for children’s motivation, well-being and their social determinants. During her post-doctoral training with Prof. Richard Tremblay at the “Groupe de recherche sur l'inadaptation psychosociale chez l’enfant”, she gained experience with longitudinal methods (e.g., Joussemet et al., 2008) and developed her interest for developmental psychopathology. As of 2005, she is a professor in the clinical area of the Department of Psychology at the Université de Montréal. Her current research focuses on children’s need for self-determination, how socializing agents can satisfy (vs. thwart) this fundamental need and how it influences child development, adjustment and well-being. She is also co-leader of the How-to Project (Nos Enfants), which evaluates the parenting program “How to talk so kids will listen & how to listen so kids will talk” (Faber & Mazlish, 1980 2000, 2010).
