Victoria Johnson is a doctoral student in the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies, specializing in Global Family Health and Wellbeing. Victoria’s passion for the wellbeing of children and family stem from her own experiences as the mother of four children, three biological and one internationally adopted. Her research interests were inspired long ago when she learned of the exploitation and sex trafficking of orphaned children in conflict-ridden countries. Her research objective seeks to address social and emotional healing and wellbeing of children and families who have experienced traumatic life events, particularly from displacement, through education-based solutions. Victoria is currently involved in research projects that focus on social and emotional development within family relationships and strengthening socioemotional skills through alternative education approaches.
