Psychotherapy and Psychopathology

Unit Coordinator:


Miguel Gonçalves​

Our global mission is to explore both the key features and both risk and protectiv​​​e factors of psychopathology that are shared by many of the psychological disorders and to translate these findings into clinical applications. Our research program lies on the interplay of psychological clinical science and its applications to the mental health of individuals. ​Our research focus on identifying and understanding patient, therapist, and relational processes in psychosocial treatments (process research), and on the development, systematization, and integration of efficacious psychotherapeutic interventions to diverse populations (outcome research).​
