    Brief description of research aims

    Inquiry and analysis of the theoretical and conceptual bases, methodological strategies and intervention techniques of the different psychotherapeutic models used to address persons’ psychological problems. The research focuses on establishing the efficiency/effectiveness levels of psychological intervention and its limitations. The aim is to identify the components that determine successful therapy and the best way to combine these components to improve psychotherapeutic interventions according to specific disorders or clients who meet the profile set for a certain therapeutic model. The team also studies the individual or environmental mechanisms that explain the development and success of psychological interventions and/or persons’ growth, autonomy and emotional well being.

    These aims are achieved through study of three focus areas:
    - Integrated models of psychological assessment in clinical and health contexts
    - Evaluation of the efficacy/effectiveness of psychotherapeutic interventions
    - Investigation of people's cognitive and emotional schemas and their implication for health outcomes
