Sonia Byrne


phD Assistant Professor at the Developmental and Educational Psychology Department at the University of La Laguna. Lecturer in the Master in Family, Social and Community-based Intervention and Mediation, and Undergraduate Degrees such as Psychology and Education.

I have worked in the design, implementation and evaluation of parenting programs, all of them evidence-based programs aimed at psychosocial risk families and the promotion of positive competences in adolescence.

I have published some articles, chapters and books in the field, one of them specifically related to this COST Action “Interventions to Promote Positive Parenting in Spain” in “The Cambridge Handbook of International Prevention Science” (2017), that it was a first approach of evidence- based programs developed in Spain.
