Involvement with youth mental health and research interests and activities
My research refers to how cognitive-emotional processes are involved in both social and personal functioning. Hence, I am interested in how both processes are involved as mechanisms in mental health. Besides, most of my research has been related to emotional intelligence mediates both personal and social growth in adolescents. Nowadays, I am involved in the role of how empathy and emotion regulation are related to mental health - especially personality disorders.
