Issues of Substance (IOS) is Canada’s only national conference that brings together addictions workers, healthcare professionals, researchers, policy makers and knowledge brokers from across the country. The theme for this year’s conference is Evidence and Perspectives, Compassion and Action, reflecting the importance of relying on research and real-world experience as we identify sustainable solutions to meet the needs of Canadians suffering from substance use disorder.
The “journées annuelles de la santé publique” will take place from 27 to 29 November 2019. Mathieu Goyette, Associate Professor in Addiction Studies and Research Programs at the University of Sherbrooke will co-host a thematic half-day on "Associating Gender and Addiction Intervention."

The poor have long been consigned to a group of "included-out" citizens. They are legally living in a place, but they are not afforded the same courtesies, entrusted with the same responsibilities, or respected in parallel processes, as those citizens of greater means and those who behave in manners that are more consistent with "middle class" values. A common sentiment in discussions of poverty and social policy is that decisions made about those living in poverty or near-poverty are illegitimate, inadvisable, and non-responsive to the needs and interests of the poor if the poor themselves are not involved in the decision-making process. In this workshop, Dr. Bryer argues that active citizenship and poverty are indeed inextricably linked. How does poor or low quality public participation of the poor and non-poor contribute to ongoing subsistence poverty across our societies? How are the poor themselves restricted as full participants in democratic life? This workshop delves into these important questions and explores the linkages between engaged citizenship and poverty, drawing on examples from the United States, Canada, parts of Western and Eastern Europe, and South Africa.

Micro-phenomenology is a new scientific discipline enabling us to discover ordinary inaccessible dimensions of our lived experience and describe them accurately and reliably. The development of this "psychological microscope" opens vast fields of investigation in the educational, technological, clinical and therapeutic, as well as artistic and contemplative domains.
