Our aim at Connecte is to bring the science of Psychology to everyone. Why? Because it’s fascinating and oh so helpful! Psychology is the science of how that little machine in our head “the mind” works and how it connects to our body and everything around us. With our solid research backgrounds, keen curiosity about how people work and our experience in multiple domains of psychology including Clinical, Social, Health, Community and Positive Psychology our aim is to cut through the hype that’s out there to bring the best science-based principles to you.
Knowledge = Power. We are here to help guide you in your search for appropriate resources, for yourself, your loved ones, your clients, your patients, and your students. We try to filter out the best and most credible resources, and have included everything from practical information, to local services, to easy-to-use mobile apps and inspiring videos!

─ OUR PICKS ─
Among the team at Connecte we are always sharing our favourite or latest finds that relate to psychology whether it be articles, Ted Talks, videos, podcasts, websites, apps… We are so passionate about this practice and it so much a part of our culture here at the office that we thought maybe you’d like to be part of it too! So, once a month we will update our “picks” for you to explore what we think is great out there in psychology. Don’t forget to refresh once a month!

Si vous ne connaissez pas le Dr. Sonia Lupien, Ph.D, je vous invite à visiter son site web http://sonialupien.com/. Dr. Lupien est une chercheure/conférencière/auteure émérite en neurosciences. Ces études portent sur le mécanisme du stress et l’impact de celui-ci sur diverses sphères (la mémoire, performance au travail, santé physique, santé mentale chez les jeunes et les adultes). Les recherches scientifiques ne sont pas toujours accessibles à tous. Cependant, Dr. Lupien utilisent plusieurs plateformes médiatiques afin de vulgariser l’information, démystifier ce qu’est le stress afin d’éduquer le public... Nous! Son site web est une mine de renseignements sur la définition, les causes et les stratégies pour gérer le stress. Jetez-y un coup d’œil!
Very rarely do I make time to let loose and dance, but any time I have I'm amazed by how good it feels! Often though, dancing takes place in the context of nightclubs, which although have many fun pros, they’re not for everyone. This is why I love the idea behind Danser Dans l'Noir, a dance event created by two students right here in Montreal, providing a space to dance with a no alcohol, no touching, and no lights(!) policy. The idea is provide a safe environment where people can lower their inhibitions and focus solely on themselves and dancing. Moreover, dancing, not to mention cardiovascular exercise, has been show to have a positive impact on our mental health (e.g., Koch, Morlinghaus, & Fuchs, 2007). If you can’t make it to Danser Dans l'Noir, I suggest inviting some friends over and having a dance party in your own living room. Don’t forget to warn your neighbours :)
