About Risk Within Reason
Alissa Sklar, Ph.D. runs this Montreal consultancy project focused on teens, technology and risky behaviours. She has a background in cultural studies, media and adolescent high risk issues. She has taught in the Communication Studies Department at Concordia University and worked in the field of adolescent risk prevention at McGill University and as a private consultant. Alissa has also been speaking and writing about parenting issues since 2003, for which she has won a total of 12 awards. Alissa draws much of her inspiration from her three daughters (8 years and 12 year old twins) and finds the line between work and family gets blurrier every day.
