I am a Clinical Psychologist and a PhD student at Lorraine University, France. My PhD thesis aims to better understand the link between high sensitivity and addictive behaviours.
In particular, this research focuses on the definition and clarification of the notion of high-sensitivity as well as its measurement, then to identify the factors -including or adding to high-sensitivity- which lead to the development of addictive behaviours, in order to propose therapeutic perspectives.
My previous research (master’s thesis) focused on the emotional aspect of individual differences in sensitivity and is rooted in the fields of clinical psychology, neuropsychology and cognitive psychology
