Research Award

The Governor General`s Gold Medal 
is given each year at Canadian Universities 
to the Doctoral research found to be of the 
highest quality for that year.

In 1996, the Governor Generalís Gold Medal at the University of Victoria was awarded to Thom Garfat, PhD for his research into the characteristics and process associated with the effective Child and Youth Care Intervention. It was the first time this award had been granted for studies related to Child and Youth Care Work.

It is this research, based on a study of the effective interventions of Youth Care Workers with troubled youth, which forms the foundation for the training offered by TransformAction. The published research is available from the Journal of Child and Youth Care, Volume 12 (1 and 2).
