Research Interests

For several years main research interests are about parental involvement and the identification and characterization of contextual and personal factors which interfere in parental involvement practices and their children development and apprenticeship. The research developed highlighted the importance of the motivational features, self-efficacy beliefs and the emotional/affective nature of parent-child interactions. Another important research interest is the identification and characterization of affective components of the learning process throughout schooling, such as motivation, self-concept, self-esteem and social support from peers and parents.
