Involvement with youth mental health and research interests and activities
The focus of my research activity is on the evaluation of trauma-focused interventions for post-traumatic stress and depressive disorders. In particular, I’m involved in national and international research projects on the application and clinical evaluation of psychological and psychotherapeutic interventions (such as EMDR therapy and Mindfulness-based interventions) for youth and adult patients with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (with or without primary somatic disorders). My work also extends into the study of intervention for healthcare workers with work-related psychological distress. I’m also a partner of the academic Spin-off Mind & Move, which promotes mind-body interventions integrated with lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity and sleep. I’m also involved in teaching activities for health professionals, with a specific focus on health worker-patient communication.
