Sophie Soklaridis’ research program uses critical social science and qualitative research approaches to explore the inclusion of clients/families in the life of the hospital as advisors, educators and experts. Her approach to research moves beyond current biomedical research priorities to understand the client as a person; to emphasize the importance of considering relational dimensions in health professions educational initiatives and research and; to develop strategies that reflect how the concepts of diversity and social justice can inform both education scholarship and influence the client/family experience of mental health service provisions. The issues of power, privilege, equity, identity and relationship-centred care are the threads that weave across her research program in mental health and addictions education scholarship and care. She is a core faculty member for the Master of Health Sciences Education in Ethiopia through the Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC) and contributes to the enhancement of research, innovation and scholarship in education within the Department of Psychiatry.
