Research Focus

As part of his PhD project, Mr Wöste explored how children and adolescents deal with themselves in intrapsychic behavior. Following the adaptation of the Structural Analysis of Social Behavior (SASB) for use with children and adolescents, he examined differences in intrapsychic behavior in patients with internalizing and externalizing disorders as well as the possibility of process evaluation within a day care setting. In addition, he examined the question of the extent to which a child and adolescent version of the SASB (»SASB-KJ«) can serve as a framework for integrative, cross-therapy psychotherapy.
