Our research theme focuses on the psycho-social processes at work in the socio-affective, socio-cognitive and identity development of children and adults (parents, professionals in the socio-educational field) in changing contexts (families, early childhood care-center, school, leisure facilities, etc.).

In a “life span” and socio-constructivist approach, we examine the role of interpersonal relationships (between children, adults and between children and adults) and interactions between different educational contexts in these development processes, particularly during psychosocial transitions.

Based on mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) focused on the study of children's and adults' perspectives, our work also aims to develop a reflection on the ethical aspects of research conducted with children and adults.

Our work is part of multidisciplinary collaborations (scientific networks in SHS and professionals in the socio-educational field) and leads to applications in the psycho-socio-educational field, particularly in terms of training professionals.

Our research projects are divided into two axis

  • A first axis "Families, psychosocial transitions, development of children and parents" is at the heart of scientific and societal debates on the evolution of family contexts and the development of children and parents, specifically during family transitions (parenthood, marital separation, stepfamily, etc.) and specifically analyzing the role of coparenting relationships.
  • The second axis, "Socialization and development of children and adolescents, Learning and Citizenship in different educational contexts", examines individual trajectories in relation to learning, representations and educational practices in school and out-of-school contexts, with a particular focus on the construction of citizenship and gender relations during childhood.
