In 2015, Isabelle and Moïra combined their expertise and initiated a large research program to shed light on the nature, causes, consequences, and treatment of parental burnout.
They founded the International Investigation of Parental Burnout (IIPB), a research consortium that now brings together 45 countries. It is dedicated to examining the conceptual validity, prevalence, and intercultural variation of parental burnout throughout the world.
With the collaboration of their team, the consortium, many researchers, and of course parents from all over the world, Moïra and Isabelle have greatly contributed to the development of this field of research.
They have published the results of their work in numerous scientific articles and four books, one for parents (in French, Le Burnout parental: l’éviter et s’en sortir, ed. Odile Jacob) and the others for professionals. You can find more details on this website https://www.burnoutparental.com/publications.
About the Training Institute for Parental Burnout
It is thanks to their research, publications, and experience that Isabelle and Moïra decided to co-found the Training Institute for Parental Burnout (presented on this website) and the Parental Burnout Research Lab. These are two worldwide reference centers for parental burnout, that they have been co-directing since 2019.
The Training Institute for Parental Burnout offers in-person and online training to professionals around the world.
Their BParent research program allows Moïra and Isabelle to develop scientifically and empirically grounded content for their training courses. This program focuses on the nature, the etiology, the consequences, and the treatment of parental burnout.
