We take pride in the fact that our research involvement informs clinical practice, identifies needs and concerns as well as strengths, and endeavours to support efforts that prevent long-term detrimental emotional and behavioural functioning within all our client groups.

Primary goals of Radius’ Research and Evaluation Department is to conduct and support clinically relevant applied research that will benefit assessment and counselling services; our goal is to provide agencies working with similar client groups with research that informs clinical practice. Specifically, with respect to research, we currently focus on understanding social, emotional, and behavioural needs of all our client groups.

It is important to us that Radius’ research benefits not only the clients that we provide service to, but has a national and international impact on services for children, youth, and families. To have this desired reach, we believe that wide dissemination and clinically relevant interpretations should be easily accessible. Therefore, we are committed to publishing our work in easily accessible and open access forums and we provide various opportunities for service providers to access our research.
