Our current research projects are generally concerned with processes of
successful development across adulthood and particularly with the
specific developmental challenges in middle adulthood. We focus on
motivational processes related to personal goals, values, and motives.
One of the central areas of application is how adults manage the
multiple demands of work and family.
- The role of goals for development
- Outcome versus process focus
- Managing work and family
- Social approach and avoidance motivation
