ACTHealthy lab, Clinical Psychology and Behavioral medicine laboratory, and ALGEA Research group, University of Cyprus


The ACTHealthy laboratory was created for the scientific study of various phenomena that are associated with the development and maintenance of psychological problems. The emphasis is placed on health related behaviours and problems as well as on the applied study of anxiety. A special interest lies also in the careful examination and development of new prevention and intervention programs.

The “ALGEA” project is a new multilevel research approach for chronic pain in Greece and Cyprus. Primary aim of the study is to investigate multiple factors (e.g. psychological, biological etc.) involved in pain adjustment and create innovative psychological interventions for chronic pain patients and their families.
