Strategic Focus

The mission of the research group is based on its interest in the design of research, to promote the formulation of graduate and continuing education programs with a view to impact, through the graduates, in the institutions where they work and therefore in the communities. We aim to provide knowledge on various phenomena related to health and the understanding of the human being. This knowledge is grounded on an interdisciplinary perspective, taking into account the knowledge of the disciplines of the “psy” (psychology, psychoanalysis and psychiatry) and its articulation with other knowledge.

Scientific Cooperation

Collaborative Relationships

We have relationships with the Forums of the Lacanian Field at the local, national, and international level. It is a school specialized in the field of psychoanalysis. We have also established links with researchers from other universities in Medellin, France (University of Toulouse), and other Latin American countries (UBA, UFRJ) where the professors who are part of the network of the Forums of the Lacanian Field are located.

Thanks to the specialization in psychopathology and clinical structures, we have students and graduates employed in public and private institutions in the city and other regions of the country. For example: UPB Medellin campus, Santander University, Sura, etc. We have also been supported by research professors who are members of other groups at the university or from external entities.
