Key words

Specialist in the field of personality and development psychology, personality disorders and biological conditions. Director of the Institute of Psychology CSWU.

Academic research conducted

  • Explorations of theoretical syntheses in the psychology of personality and development, based on precision of thinking and sensitivity to empirical evidence, originating from the Carthesian more geometrico and Popperian sympathy to deduction.
  •  The current studies and syntheses undertaken concern a broadly understood personality structure – from personality disorders and the dark triad to the values, strengths, welfare, and from another viewpoint: from biological determinants, through psychosocial development to development of identity.
