MASKE: MASKed Emotion? (cooperation with Prof. Dr. Ursula Hess and team)

During the pandemic, covering part of the face (i.e., wearing a mask) has become the new normal in public places such as supermarkets, offices and schools. As the face is crucial in disovering another person's emotional state, an online study will be conducted to detect if it is more difficult to detect emotions in masked faces. This will be analyzed in both children and adults, dependent on psychopathological symptoms and attitudes.

Mastermind: Vocal arousal in the context of emotion regulation and stress

Our voice is central in conveying information about the speaker's emotional state. However, little is known about the relation between vocal and emotional regulation, especially in relation to psychopathological symptoms. An experimental stress task will be conducted in young adults to assess potential effects of conscious regulation of vocal and emotional arousal in a social stress task. Potentially, both a master and a bachelor thesis can approach this topic.

Stressfrei nach Corona: Ein psychologisches Hilfsprogramm

Psychological distress in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic may be caused by many sources such as threat to physical health (i.e. the virus itself), restriced social interactions, restricted civil rights, long crisis duration and high economic uncertainty. We aim to map the unique psychological signature of this novel event in children, youth, and adults, its impact on individuals and societies from a clinical perspective and to apply a stepped-care approach with a scalable online treatment, followed by a group face-to-face intervention for individuals presenting with residual symptoms. A master thesis will target the effects of online treament on parents of children.
