Our academic programmes focus on the normal and deviant psychosocial development and relationships of young people within their family units, with their peers, at school and in relation to the wider social context. We also look at diagnostics, prevention and intervention aimed at promoting the optimal development of young people.

We contribute to various degree programmes at Bachelor's, Master's and Research Master's level. For the three-year Bachelor's programme in Pedagogical Sciences, we coordinate courses, give lectures, facilitate tutorials and supervise theses. Furthermore, we teach courses for the Master's programmes in Youth, Education and Society (YES) and Clinical Child, Family & Education Studies (CCFES) and we supervise students' work placements and Master's theses. We also teach courses for the Research Master's programme in Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DASCA). Our lecturers regularly give guest lectures at other degree programmes and faculties.
