Carlota Alcover Van De Walle

Researcher and professor – Responsible for the Psycho-pedagogical department



I'm a Doctor in Psychology, specialized in general health psychology. I have developed my professional career mainly in clinical psychology care, specifically in children and youth populations. Over the years, I have specialized in neurodevelopment disorders and the systemic psychology intervention, understanding which difficulties may emotionally arise in people's environment, relationships, and life circumstances. Parallelly to clinical practice, I have been able to participate in research related to neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Currently, I continue combining clinical practice with research and teaching different subjects at ESIMar, which range from human development to communication skills and difficulties in grief processes.
