The course “Understanding the impact of difficult living conditions on vulnerable children”, led by Dr. Delphine Collin-Vézina, delves into the raison d’être of CSP through an examination of the challenges faced by vulnerable children, the consequences of difficult living conditions on their health, well-being and development, and the interventions used to help them.
