During this symposium, we will discuss several mental disorders – autism, obesity and problematic screen use – from different perspectives: risk factors, protection and children and teenagers’ capacity for resilience. Our key focus is the understanding of the psychological processes involved in those mental disorders, such as attention, emotions, cognitions, metacognition and psychodynamic processes. Approaches from developmental psychology, psychoanalysis and cognitive behavioral therapy are intertwined when it comes to evaluation and patient care.
