Tina Daniels has worked in the field of psychology and child studies for over 25 years and is an accomplished researcher and educator. She is an associate professor at Carleton University and is considered an expert on the subjects of bullying and social aggression in children and youth.
Tina has played a fundamental role in Canada in helping to identify and understand the underlying factors of bullying, and in developing and evaluating resources to aid children, youth and adults. She addressed the Standing Senate Committee on Children’s Human Rights regarding cyber-bullying that lead to the recommendation that a coordinated strategy be adopted to promoting awareness on this important issue. She is an active member of PREVNet, a national network of leading researchers and organizations working together to stop bullying in Canada. Each year she gives a number of workshops for teachers, parents and children regarding the development and implementation of anti-bullying initiatives.
At Cappelli & Associates we are fortunate that Tina has a passion for working one-on-one with children, adolescents and young adults. At our practice Tina is responsible for conducting comprehensive psychological and psychoeducational assessments. She brings an in depth understanding of developmental psychology that forms the scientific basis of the assessment tools she uses, as well as the ability to create a calm and reassuring environment so that even the most reluctant young client can relax, focus and complete the assessment to the best of their ability. As a University Professor she is also able to assess next steps for youth who are finishing high school and to make recommendations for the types of accommodations that may be required to support learning at college or university.
Tina obtained her Masters of Applied Science in Educational Psychology and her Doctorate in Developmental Psychology with a specialization in Social and Emotional Development at the University of Waterloo, Ontario.
