Bio/Research

Susan Silver's research projects include a national study to develop an evaluation framework for family support programs. Working with Family Resource Programs across Canada, this was the first study to develop evaluation indicators that are grounded in the experiences most valued by program participants. Reports are available at the project web-site. Susan also completed a national study examining the role of labour market restructuring in creating pathways towards precarity and exclusion of Canadian workers. Susan has also worked with Canadian and Dominican researchers and community organizations in the evaluation of community-based programs for child protection. She has also worked with occupational and health professionals from Brazil, in a project promoting equity and safety among industrial workers. Currently, Susan is exploring chronic illness and women’s health, as well as the critical use of virtual interactive technologies in community-based research and evaluation.
