Research environments

Research in psychology concern cognition, personality, mental illness, stress, pain, sleep, social anxiety, antisocial behavior, criminality, psychopathy, social relationships (to peers, parents, etc.), peer networks, prevention, intervention, and several other areas. The research questions posed range from psychopathology to positive psychology. There are two broader research environments; the Center for Health and Medical Psychology (CHAMP), under the direction of Steven Linton, and Center for Developmental Research (CDR), headed by Håkan Stattin. These two research environments, together with colleagues in other disciplines, gather thirty researchers and graduate students.

Center for Health and Medical Psychology seeks to understand the psychological mechanisms underlying the development of mental and physical health and illness. Center for Developmental Research specialises in longitudinal research on people's social and psychological development, and especially adolescents and young adults' development. The research team is working also with researchers in the fields of political socialisation and intervention/prevention science.
