DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY LAB
The Developmental Psychology Lab was established in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cyprus by Dr Panayiotis Stavrinides and Professor Stelios Georgiou. The lab is currently involved in a number of research projects related to the development of problem behaviour and adjustment difficulties during childhood and adolescence (i.e. bullying and victimization, externalizing and internalizing problems, adolescent substance use and delinquency), childhood and adolescent psychopathy, and parent-child interactions.
Most our studies utilize short-term and long-term longitudinal designs but we also employee experimental, quasi experimental, and qualitative methods. Currently a selected number of doctoral and master students actively work in our lab completing their graduate dissertations, and a number of undergraduate students work as research assistants completing their undergraduate theses.
