The Centre's research has focused on family transitions, now more critical than in the past, enabling the development of interpretative models that have significantly affected the Italian and international culture. A multigenerational look and attention to the exchange between generations are the characteristics that led to the beginning of the very innovative research and training paths.


The Centre has a strong tradition and expertise on training both at Post-graduate and Masters level (I and II) - nationally and internationally. Excellent education is promoted for professionals and experts working with a psycho, social and educational approach with families.

All the training activities are carried out in collaboration with Alta Scuola di Psicologia "A. Gemelli" or Servizio per la Formazione Permanente of the Catholic University.
