Sophie Labossière is a Ph.D. candidate in psycho-education at the Université de Sherbrooke. As part of her master’s and doctoral studies, she focused on the mechanisms (personal characteristics, stressors, perceived stress and social support) involved in the development of symptoms of mental health disorders frequently encountered by university student-athletes. Also a psychoeducator and student member of the Canadian Association of Sport Psychology, Sophie works with student-athletes to support their mental preparation and psychosocial adaptation. She will soon be starting a postdoctoral internship at Université Laval under the supervision of Professor Sylvie Parent and Professor Julie Lane. Her research will focus on preventing violence and the development of mental health problems in athletes. Sophie is currently coordinating a project funded by the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec aimed at creating training to prevent sexual violence among university athletes.
