AE03: Developmental Psychology and Developmental Psychopathology


In 2020 many families have already supported us by participating in subproject 1 and 2. We would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU and wish you a happy New Year!
Also in the new year 2021 we are still looking for biological families as well as foster and adoptive families to support us. You are welcome to register under!

Regarding the current situation in times of the Corona virus, the EMPOWERYOU consortium issued a statement on the situation of foster and adoptive families, which you can find here.

In the EMPOWERYOU project, we want to investigate what protects
children and young people from stressful experiences of bullying and
violence and what helps them to cope with these experiences.
For this purpose we are looking for participants aged 8 to 21 years, who live with their biological, foster or adoptive parents, and their (foster/adoptive) parents. Young adults aged 11 to 21 years who do not live with their parents (e.g. in a residential group, in their own apartment) can also participate.

If you are interested, please contact or call us at 0521-106 4500.

In the project #teen.sleep.stress, sleep of adolescents and how they experience stress is focused. Since August 2019, we have already been able to welcome more than 180 young people to our sleep laboratory. In the next months, further surveys will be conducted, so we are still looking for interested participants between 11 and 17 years of age, who are situated in the Bielefeld region.
