Jean LaFrance

Dr. Jean Lafrance received a master’s degree in social work from Carleton University and a PhD from the University of Southern California. He is currently an associate orofessor with the University of Calgary. Lafrance’s last experience with government as Alberta’s provincial Children’s Advocate led him into a keen interest in translating the perspectives of children and their families in forums that can serve to inform program and policy development in human services delivery. LaFrance is especially interested in change processes that can assist Aboriginal people to develop children’s services programs that are more congruent with their aspirations and worldviews.
