Psychology: Interactions, Time, Emotions, Cognition (PSITEC)

Research unit - ULR 4072


The activity of our unit is centered on research in psychology, both in a broad perspective and in response to societal needs. We study the interactions between individual and environmental factors that are at the origin of situations of handicap, maladjustment, emotional dysfunction, and deviant behaviors in different life environments: school, professional, legal and penitentiary, hospital or specialized institution, or simply in the ordinary environment. This objective, nourished by theoretical analysis, is pursued with the development of practical applications that meet the expectations of the field: prevention of dysfunctions and remediation; adjustments for the improvement of living conditions and learning contexts; consulting and guidance for pedagogical, educational, and rehabilitative practices and methods; design and implementation of lifestyle education programs at school and in institutions.
