The Family Psychology and Violence Laboratory is an inter- and intradisciplinary research unit established in 2021 in CE F&R Centre. Its leader is Dr. Marzanna Farnicka.

The department is interested in processes taking place in the family from an educational, clinical, developmental, and criminological perspective.
The branch aims to thoroughly understand the key factors influencing decisions and behaviors, especially in the sphere of family life.

We focus on the mechanisms that arise in the case of domestic violence, both from the perspective of the whole and individual life trajectories.

In addition to conducting scientific research and carrying out expert opinions, our activities include cooperation with international and national research and educational institutions and the dissemination of reliable knowledge that improves the quality of life and safety seen in the scale of small groups and local communities.
