Developmental Psychology

Anne Margit Reitsema is a postdoc at Thriving & Healthy Youth within the research theme Dynamics of Youth, where she focuses on emotions and well-being in children and adolescents. She is particularly interested in how young people learn to distinguish between emotions and how they use physical sensations as a source of information to determine what they feel. This is particularly relevant during puberty, when adolescents undergo many physical changes, but also in young people with medically unexplained physical symptoms.
