Relevant characteristics of the research group (description of the group's activity):

Welcome to the information page of the Research Group on Ageing (GOOD OLD AGEING).  Our group, which was validated in 2020 as a Universidad CEU San Pablo Research Group is made up of 10 members, linked to the field of Psychology of Ageing.

 Through different lines of research, the group addresses the psychological problems of the elderly, their families and the professionals involved in their care. This research work is based on the development of assessment protocols with psychometric quality and on the design, application and evaluation of effective intervention programmes. Our ultimate goal is to deepen our knowledge of psychological reactions in old age (from the development of disorders to the consolidation of positive aspects).
