I have four general research interests:
(1) Folk and Hope Psychology: My current research interests include folk psychology, especially the problem of subjective theories about hope (in relation to hope understood as a process versus a system of regulation, as well as its mechanisms and functions, an individual and social utility, phenomenology, etc.).
(2) Theory of Mind (TOM) in Developmental Disorders of Social Cognition: A second area of my work, connected to pragmatics, is on helping children and people with autism and Asperger Syndrome to develop social competences and to improve "mindreading" ability.
(3) Body Image Problems: Recently my research has concerned how young people's body image relates to subjective well-being, physical health, personal goals, values and hope level, as well as emotional/social expression and every day/occasional activities.
(4) Applied Internet/Cyberpsychology: Some years ago I started to serve as a volunteer mentor in psychology via self-help Internet forums for different groups (parents of disabled children, youth with problems vs. interested in psychology, young people with HFA/AS). This activity motivated me to create the e-journal "Psychology and Reality" and a professional e-library and services with information on autism, Asperger syndrome, and other topics.
