From "Cold-Blooded" Cognition to Socio-Cognitive Development: Marcelle Ricard, Thérèse Gouin Décarie, Stephan Desrochers, and Tibie Rome-Flanders

In 1954, the Congres international de psychologie scientifique held its annual meeting in Montreal. Piaget was one of the guest speakers, and during his stay, his first in the province of Quebec, he met the few developmental psychologists who worked at the relatively new Department of Psychology of the University of Montreal. Piaget, who never learned to speak English, was delighted to find a nucleus of researchers who were already familiar with his work and . . . who spoke French.
