Work Experience: From October 2008 until today I have been working as a psychologist at the Branch of Rehabilitation and Remedy for Children with Disabilities of Thessaloniki (P.A.A.P.A.TH.), of the Welfare Centre of Central Macedonia which provides care, rehabilitation programs and psychosocial support to people with disabilities. I have been working in the field of psychological support for disabled children, their social careers and their families, as well as in the fields of Volunteering and Education –Sensitization for people with disabilities. Also, from 2008 till today i give courses on School and Developmental Psychology at the University of Thessaly (Volos). Research: My research interests include the self-concept and affect during adolescence and young adulthood in a developmental perspective as well as the relation between the attachment and the formation of self concept, affect and close relationships during adolescence and emerging adulthood. More specifically, my research focuses on the main self-concepts, including the self-perception of psychical appearance, and their relationship with self - esteem, positive and negative affect towards self and the formation of close interpersonal relationships. Moreover, i am interested in investigating the body image of people with disabilities, their appearance satisfaction or dissatisfaction and how these factors affect their well-being and their relationships to others.
