Who are we?
The Adaptation, Performance, and Human Development Research Group (APHD-RG) aims to research several topics, all with a common denominator: understanding the psychological processes involved in adaption, performance, and development in different areas of human functioning.
- Human Adaptation
- Line 1. Stress and cognitive appraisal
- Human Performance
- Line 2. Psychological/life skills: Adults
- Line 3. Leadership
- Human development
- Line 4. Psychological/life skills: Youths
- Line 5. Exercise and health behaviors
- Line 6. Youth sports participation
Adopting a logic of “research-action”, the APHD research group developed the School of Life Skills (SLS). SLS aims to provide the community with a set of services derived from the theoretical and empirical indications of our research work on life skills training. That is, SLS proposes and tests these intervention programs with the aim of promoting life skills in different age groups and contexts.
The intervention areas focus directly on the research lines and are organized in the training of the following psychological and life skills:
- Time management
- Stress management
How the group works
These meetings function as a platform to address various topics, such as discussing research data, analyzing and processing data, scientific writing, publication of scientific papers, and designing research and intervention programs.
Is it possible to join the group?
Yes, as long as there is an interest in the research group's common denominator: human adaptation, performance, and development.
If you are interested in any specific topic, please feel free to contact any member of the group.
