Teaching Focus

In the Psychology BA and MA programs, I am responsible for teaching the personality psychology module and in the psychological diagnostics modules. Personality psychology studies the individual characteristics of human behavior and deals with differences between individuals. It also considers developments within individuals that result from different life stages or life experiences. Psychological diagnostics leads to a deep understanding of approaches and methods that measure differences between and within individuals reliably and validly. Across different programs, I am also engaged in teaching basic knowledge of psychodrama intervention techniques.

Research Focus

My research focuses on the differences between rather conscious and controlled as opposed to rather unconscious and spontaneous processes of human behavior. Current research projects analyze psychodramatic intervention approaches that aim to change both conscious and unconscious processes of human behavior regulation. Additionally, we explore expression-oriented procedures as alternatives to conventional self-report measures in the context of personnel selection.
