Melissa Kimber, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences and associate member of the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact at MCMaster University, and a Registered Social Worker. The objectives of Dr. Kimber’s research program are three-fold: (1) to determine the risk and protective factors, as well as outcomes for child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, and mental health concerns among children and adolescents; (2) to support health and social service providers to safely and confidently identify and respond to suspicions and disclosures of child maltreatment (including exposure to intimate partner violence) when working with children and adolescents with mental health concerns; and (3) to identify, evaluate, and disseminate evidence-informed secondary and tertiary preventative interventions for child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, and mental disorders among children and adolescents.
