LEADER - Research
LEADER is a research environment that comprises researchers dedicated to the understanding of various aspects of human functioning and development. Broadly stated, our research aims to understand lifespan development using mixed methods to track changes in behavior, personality, social relationships, attitudes, and neurocognitive processes. We are also interested in the role of contextual conditions on human development and how to prevent negative development and promote adjustment. Our research involves children, adolescents and adults from diverse social backgrounds.
If you are interested in collaboration on topics related to our research or have questions about potential membership of the environment, contact any of the researchers.
The LEADER research environment actively takes part in incorporating research findings into clinical and societal policy making, as well as informing the public of new research developments.
