Much of her research work is focused on understanding the grief and trauma experiences of adults and youth survivors of gun homicide. Dr. Bailey has explored the experiences of Black mothers who lost children to gun violence; as well as youth who lost friends and siblings to gun homicide in Toronto. She has conducted a comprehensive key informant assessment with stakeholders across Canada to establish Canadian-specific evidence for policy development for gun violence survivors.
