Emotional Processes

The role of emotional processes in the intra- and interpersonal functioning

We intend to study the role of some protective factors of intra- and interpersonal functioning, such as self-compassion, hope, spirituality, optimism, resilience, and mindfulness to mental health. We also want to understand the potential mediating role of these protective factors against the risk variables to psychopathology, such as dissociation, traumatic experiences, early maladaptive experiences, and interpersonal difficulties.
