Anna Butjosa Molines
Anna Butjosa graduated in Psychology in 2009 from the University of Barcelona, and received her Doctor of Psychology degree from the University of Barcelona in 2017.
During 2015 she spent a pre-doctoral stay at Maastricht University and KU Leuven where she participated in a longitudinal study called "Genetic Risk and Outcome of Psychosis Project" (GROUP, Korver et al. 2012). The aim was to investigate the factors of vulnerability and resilience of the development of a psychotic disorder and the variability in the course of the disease, comparing these variables with siblings of patients with first psychotic episode and control population.
In 2012, she started her research career at the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation, where she studies patients with first psychotic episodes and stress.
In 2017, she joined the Child and Youth Mental Health Center of Cornellà del Llobregat in the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital as a psychologist/researcher, within the TEVI Program with children and adolescents witnessing gender-based violence.
