Jeffrey McCrossin (MSW, MScA) is a licensed social worker, couple and family therapist, and psychotherapist. His clinical practice has centred on working with children and families in the contexts of community mental health, paediatric rehabilitation, and most recently, in his private practice. His current doctoral research at McGill University’s School of Social Work is focused on family-centred interventions that foster resilience in families of children with neurodisabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy. His two primary projects involve exploring the impact of an online parenting program on family resilience, and a mixed-methods evaluation of a parent-to-parent family support network. Jeffrey is also interested in research and practice in family-centre care and collaboration in medical settings, as well as clinical supervision for social workers and couple and family therapists. Jeffrey’s research is funded in part by fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS).
