The research focus in our School is on the application of psychological knowledge and methods to improve the emotional and psychological well-being of children, adults and families.
Achievement of this goal is supported by both basic and applied research within the School.
What is distinctive about our research is its capacity to:
- make important discoveries about the nature of psychological problems
- identify the persons to whom these discoveries apply and identify the implications of these discoveries for the assessment and diagnosis of these problems
- develop, implement, and evaluate the implied interventions
- disseminate the new interventions to the professional community.
