Institute for Research on Children, Youth and Family
The Institute for Research on Children, Youth and Family focuses on psychological research of the individual in different stages of his or her life. Currently, we specialise in school-age children, adolescents, and young adults. Although the psychological viewpoint is dominant, more and more studies are conducted interdisciplinarily. Recently, we have been concentrating on the following five research areas: the psychosocial characteristics of youth in the transition from adolescence into adulthood; behaviour, relationships and communication on the internet and the influence of new media on the lives of children and youth; talented children and youth; the psychological aspects of civic and political participation of young people.
