Why my research is important?

The key aim of my research is to identify different parenting and family related processes that play a role in children’s and adolescents’ socio-emotional and academic learning either as developmental resources or as risk factors of adaptive development. By adding scientific understanding on these family processes will provide a basis for the development of effective programs to foster family well-being and prevent youth school dropout and marginalization from society.
