Social worker by training, Sylvie R. Gagnon holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Montréal, where she studied the social representations of gambling habits among adolescents. She taught the certificate in addiction studies at the University of Sherbrooke for 10 years, and was a clinician-researcher with the HERMES team until 2020. Ms. Gagnon is also a clinician-researcher at the CISSS de Lanaudière, and following the emergence of requests for help for problematic Internet use (PIU), she became actively involved in Dr. Magali Dufour’s research. Within this context, she coordinated two clinical studies conducted in addiction rehabilitation centres, which helped determine the clinical profile of problematic Internet users in Quebec.
