Theoretical and epistemological approach

Theoretical and epistemological perspective

Research developed by this team is based on the following premises, and ideological and epistemological approaches:


  • Theoretical and methodological pluralism. It is not assigned to a single theoretical paradigm within psychology. Importance of both qualitative and quantitative data (multimethod).

  • Approach to quality of life. Priority of positive social change evaluation. Definitively, positive psychology approach.

  • Attention to complexity theories. Social realities are complex and can be blurry, fractal, chaotic…Cause-effect relationship can be neither linear nor proportional.

  • Complexity + Quality of life. Understanding complex social realities requires knowing the perspective of all involved social agents. It is fundamentally interested in the perspective of children and adolescents themselves.

  • the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and its implementation. It takes into account the Rights to provision, protection and participation.

  • Commitment to social relevance of research. Applied utility from results. Coping statistical invisibility of children. Working for the availability of subjective social indicators in childhood.
