  • Titulaire d’un diplôme de psychologie clinique de l’université ISPA et d’un doctorat en psychologie du développement de l’Université du Québec à Montréal, Manuela Verissimo est actuellement vice-doyenne de l’école doctorale à l’ISPA et coordonne également le département de psychologie du développement. Elle a publié plusieurs articles dans des revues scientifiques nationales et internationales (comme Child Development ou Attachment and Human Development) et a présenté ses travaux en tant que conférencière, intervenante ou discutante dans de nombreux colloques. Consultante pour des projets de recherches dans de nombreux pays (Espagne, France et Etats-Unis), elle a reçu le prix Bowlby Ainsworth du Center for Mental Health Promotion et du New York Attachment Consortium en 2011 pour sa contribution à la recherche et à l’enseignement concernant la théorie de l’attachement. Ces recherches ont pour but de comprendre les liens entre la qualité des relations stables durant l’enfance et les retombées ultérieures dans le domaine du développement social et émotionnel. Elle s’est particulièrement intéressée à l’étude du rôle et des interactions père/enfant. Un autre point central de ses recherches concerne la construction des modèles internes de fonctionnement de l’attachement et le passage du niveau comportemental au représentationnel. Ces recherches s’enracinent à la fois dans des perspectives développementales et interculturelles.

She has published several of articles in national and international scientific reviews, like Child Development, Attachment and Human Development and has been invited as keynote speaker, presenter or discussant in several international conferences. She was a consultant in research projects in several countries like Spain, France and the USA. In 2011 she received the Bowlby Ainsworth Award from the Center for Mental Health Promotion e The New York Attachment Consortium for her contribution in investigation and teaching within the field of Attachment Theory. Her research aims to emphasize the connection between the quality of secure-base relationships, during infancy and childhood, and a range of outcomes in the domains of social and emotional development. She is particularly interested in studying the role of father/child interaction and relationship. Another major research question concerns the construction of internal working models of attachment, which is the passage from the behavioural level to the representational level. Finally, her research is profoundly embodied in both developmental and cross-cultural perspectives.
