Christophe Maïano is Full Professor at the Département de Psychoéducation et de Psychologie at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (Québec, Canada). His expertise broadly covers psychosocial interventions, adapted physical activity interventions, and health prevention and education interventions. Overall, his research activities aim at improving the physical and psychological well-being of individuals with an intellectual disability (ID), physical health problems, or mental health disorders. His current research projects are centered on: (a) the assessment of self-conceptions, mental health, and well-being in youth with or without an ID; (b) the identification of social factors related to the development of self-conceptions in youth with or without an ID; (c) the interrelations between social factors, self-conceptions and the biopsychosocial adaptation of youth with or without an ID (obesity, eating disorders, well-being, etc); and (d) the effects of physical activity (behaviors or interventions) for furthering positive outcomes for youth with special needs (conduct disorders, intellectual disabilities, obesity, etc.).
