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
- Desenvolvimento humano
- Line 4. Psychological/life skills: Youths
- Line 5. Exercise and health behaviors
- Line 6. Youth sports participation
Adotando uma lógica de “investigação-ação”, o grupo de investigação ARDH desenvolveu a Escola Competências de Vida (ECV). A ECV, visa propor à comunidade um conjunto de serviços derivados das indicações teóricas e empíricas dos nossos trabalhos de investigação sobre o treino de competências de vida. Ou seja, a ECV propõe e testa programas de intervenção no sentido de promover competências de vida, em distintos grupos etários e contextos.
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.
