School of Psychology and Psychotherapy

Professorship for Developmental and Educational Psychology


Human development takes place throughout the entire life span (from conception to old age) and in a variety of contexts. All levels involved (biological, psychological and socio-structural) are subject to constant systematic and unsystematic change, challenging developmental regulation at all times. Against this background, the Lab for Developmental and Educational Psychology focuses on three research areas: goal engagement, goal disengagement, and the role of contexts for developmental regulation. Furthermore, it is involved in the development of research paradigms and statistical methods.
