Significant Contributions in the Field of Research
At MS Centro de Psicología, our commitment to research is reflected through a series of significant contributions to the field of clinical psychology and mental health. Our team of professionals has actively engaged in generating and disseminating knowledge through various publications and presentations at renowned conferences.
Among our contributions, the publication of the book "What You Always Wanted to Know About Alcohol and Never Dared to Ask" stands out. Co-authored by J. Gibert Rahola, Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Cádiz, E. Spínola Bruzón, and M. Sancho García-Serrano, the book was published by Grupo Aula Médica in 2019. Additionally, we have co-authored an article on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in the "Psiquiatria Biologica" journal, exploring its features, etiology, and treatment.
Our team has actively participated in relevant conferences and congresses in the field. María Sancho has presented research on suicidal behavior and dependence on stimulant drinks at the National Congress of Psychiatry, as well as shared insights at the International Congress of Clinical Psychology on the relationship between attachment and trauma. Additionally, along with her colleague Irene Sierra, we have participated in educational innovation conferences and workshops, conducting research on anxiety and learning in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, it's important to highlight that both Irene Sierra and María Sancho are currently immersed in their doctoral theses in collaboration with the University of Cádiz. Their dedication to research has led them to embark on projects of significant relevance and magnitude.
Irene Sierra's research focuses on the study of the relationship between body image and social media—an essential topic in today's society. Through her research, she aims to understand how online interactions impact individuals' perception of their bodies and how this might influence their emotional and psychological well-being.
On the other hand, María Sancho's research centers around attachment, executive functions, and psychological well-being in adolescents. Her study encompasses a diverse sample of students from various schools. Attachment and executive functions are fundamental aspects of adolescents' emotional and cognitive development, and her research seeks to shed light on how these variables relate to their overall well-being.
Irene and María's commitment to research reflects their passion for delving into crucial issues in psychology and mental health. We are proud to have dedicated and passionate professionals who seek to contribute to the advancement of knowledge for the benefit of our clients and the community at large.
These contributions showcase our ongoing commitment to knowledge generation and continuous improvement in the field of psychology. We believe that research is essential for providing our clients with evidence-based best practices and for enriching our understanding of the ever-evolving challenges of mental health.
