Research Interests:

I am interested in developing a biopsychosocial model integrating psychoanalytic and developmental theories to understand the developmental pathways to disorders of affect regulation and associated symptoms. In my undergraduate research I focused on the observation of family dynamics of heroin addicted subjects. My PhD research comprised a comparative study of disorders of affect-regulation and emotional containment in three groups: substance additions, psychosomatic conditions and para-suicide. Presently I am interested in the assessment of the different social systems and structures in which children develop: primary relationships with parents (attachment), establishment of a secure-base for exploration of the environment, and autonomous interactions with peers in preschool and school periods.
