She has received the YWCA award for professional women and the Canadian Psychological Association's Award for Distinguished Contributions to Public or Community Service. Dr. Landy has published three books on early childhood development and intervention: Pathways to Competence: Enhancing the Emotional and Social Development of Young Children, 2nd ed.

She was formerly Head of the Division of Child Psychiatry, and Psychiatrist-in-Chief at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. Dr. Bradley was consultant psychiatrist to the Child and Adolescent Gender Identity Clinic at the new CAMH-Clarke Division (formerly the Clarke Institute), a clinic which Dr. Bradley founded in the late seventies. Other research interests include evaluation of parenting problems, especially as they relate to parents of young children. Theoretical interests include models that explain the development of psychopathology integrating findings from the developmental literature. Her book Affect Regulation and the Development of Psychopathology (2000) provides a model that integrates biological and psychosocial thinking in psychiatry. Her interest in prevention has led to the development of the Infant Mental Health Project, a community-based coalition aimed at facilitating the work of front-line care providers with parents of young children. Dr. Bradley has played a leadership role in the restructuring of services for children's mental health in Toronto and, as Early Years Champion, led the process of choosing 22 Early Years Centers in Toronto.
