dr. V.E. (Vera) Heininga

Assistant Professor of Youth Studies


My research draws together psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and pedagogy with the aim to unravel the psychosocial mechanisms of resilience in youth. Using an idiographic approach (i.e., Experience Sampling Methods), I investigate to what extent youth’s resilience - and the intergenerational transmission thereof - is shaped by contextual factors in daily life.

Keywords: Well-being and mental health, resilience, collecting real-time data by smartphone (Experience Sampling Method), interventions, open science
