I am particularly interested in mental health. I study the links between social norms and mental issues. I published the following work in 2009 that draws upon this topic: État dépressif et temporalité: Contribution à la sociologie de la santé mentale (Éditions Liber). My research also focuses on the practice of sport. As such, the Montreal Canadians represent, for me, an incredible mirror of contemporary social demands. I co-edited the book Le canadien de Montréal: Une légende repensée, (Presses de l’Université de Montréal) in 2011. It investigates the social impact of this great hockey team. I also study how sport can constitute a tool for psychosocial development, as a part of innovative intervention practices for troubled youth.
