ART Project
Self-esteem, Relationships, Eating tendencies

The ART project is an interdisciplinary initiative which aims at putting together ideas, exchanging experiences and promoting research around the psychological problems related to self-esteem, relationships and eating tendencies.

What we treat

Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is usually the foundation of almost all psychological problems. The ability to value yourself, take yourself into account, treat yourself well, and trust yourself. We learn this ability when, as children, we are valued, considered and treated well by the significant people in our environment and when we have good models to learn from.

Relationships

We exist through the interpersonal relationships we build. Through them, as we grow, our personality is formed. Having healthy relationships helps us maintain mental health. However, building healthy bonds is difficult if we carry childhood trauma or repeat pathological patterns. When we are born, we are programmed to start building emotional bonds with our parents because our survival depends on them.

Eating Tendencies

By eating tendencies, we understand both eating disorders (ED) and any eating pattern that can be harmful and cause suffering, even if it does not meet the criteria for a disorder.

ART Project

All this is done to develop and offer science-based treatments, effective and adapted to the needs of the modern world.
