Bringing together knowledge to promote the well-being of individuals, couples, and families. 

CRIPCAS's work pools the expertise of our researchers and a vast network of collaborators from different backgrounds across Quebec, Canada and abroad. 
Our research contributes to raising awareness regarding interpersonal violence and relationship challenges at all stages of life by documenting risk factors, protective factors, and repercussions. Armed with this knowledge, we develop and evaluate prevention and intervention initiatives that are based on rigorous data and improve practices.
