Falkenberg, Thomas; Ukasoanya, Grace; Krepski, Heather – McGill Journal of Education, 2021

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) has become very prominent among adolescents in middle and high school settings.

Results indicate that these variables…

Berger, Paul; Epp, Juanita Ross – McGill Journal of Education, 2006
Practices exist in Nunavut schools that were reported by "Qallunaat" (non-Inuit) teachers in Berger's (2001) study to "work," but that seem to be against historical Inuit culture. In this paper we discuss dangers in using such practices in schools that already erode Inuit culture, and also reasons to consider their use, then…

MacKay, A. Wayne; Burt-Gerrans, Janet – McGill Journal of Education, 2005
The authors begin with a discussion of the duality in how children are viewed in both international and domestic law. Children are viewed as both under the protection and authority of adults, at the same time as being rights bearing individuals. Following recognition of the difficult tension created by this duality, these authors focus on its…
