Alice Balter has an interest in health promotion and education, with a focus on child and adolescent health and well-being, parenting, sexuality, and mental health. Since working at the University of Guelph-Humber in addition to teaching in both Family and Community Social Services (FCSS) and Early Childhood Studies (ECS) programs, she has been a successful grant recipient three years in a row (2014-2016) to study (a) Early Childhood Educators' (ECEs) perceptions of the development of sexuality and gender in childhood (2014); (b) how teachers (K-12) maintain positive mental health (2015); and, (c) the outcomes of a Toronto Public Health professional development workshop, Raising Sexually Healthy Children for Early Child Care Providers.
