Research We are all conducting research in the field of Clinical Developmental Psychology. Disorders of children and adolescents will be looked at from a developmental point of view, the so called developmental psychopathology approach.
Information-processing models provide a useful framework for modeling the diverse cognitive biases and distortions that appear to be operative in different types of psychopathology and for explaining the relationships among them. More specifically, we focus on a individual differences and cognitive vulnerability factors in depression in childhood, in attachment related problems and in eating disorders and obesity.
We also give special attention to the clinical implications and considerassessment and treatment (including parenting) for youngsters with depression, attachment-related problems, conduct disorders and obesity.
