  • The research field I have been working on in recent years involves studying situations of vulnerability in relation to the presence of traumas and illnesses (traumas and wars/conflicts - HIV- adults and children - paediatric oncology - eating disorders -)

  • This research involves constructing assistance systems based on a perspective of integration for the preparation of services for vulnerable groups and the definition of rehabilitation programs.

  • The research field work follows an action research-based approach, is applied to war contexts and proposes to construct co-operation programs between people and to develop a sense of belonging to one's territory and community, focusing its attention not only on the problems but also on the strategies for improving the resources and skills of both individuals and groups.

  • My current research is focused on resilience processes and the possible indicators of reconstruction after a trauma or an illness.
