Description
We provide teaching, research and service in the domains of personality and differential psychology. We conduct cross-sectional and longitudinal research on the structure and development of (maladaptive) personality traits, social-emotional skills, interests, and leadership. We particularly value translating research to professional practice, by developing assessment tools to describe personality differences among children, adolescents and adults and how to implement these in the clinical and counseling professional practice.
