I finished my PhD in 2016, focusing on the co-development of early adolescent friendship and externalizing behaviors such as antisocial behaviour, alcohol use, and tobacco use. My experience as a facilitator started at the European Federation of Psychology Students’ Associations and in 2011 I became active in the Pestalozzi Programme of the Council of Europe as a facilitator of the training “education for the prevention of violence in schools.”

My favorite activity is Open Space Discussions, which reflects my style of facilitation.

My style is participative, creative and flexible. Whenever possible, I like participants to be active and in charge of their learning. I enjoy focusing on group processes and dynamics and see how teams collaborate actively.

Learn to Change is launching an exploration: Announcement for the Collective

Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
