Emília Comas Carbonell, psicóloga, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona


Spanish, Catalan, English

I have worked as an infant and child psychologist and family therapist since 2007. In my first few years, I specialised in child mistreatment and negligence, and then in pediatric palliative care. Currently, I combine my care work with teaching at the university as an Associate Professor. In the field of research, I did my PhD in Pediatric Psycho-Oncology, exploring the experiences of children whose lives are threatened by cancer. 

From my point of view, the internal world of children is a mystery that never stops surprising me.
