Psychosocial Consequences of Social Class

The research we carry out analyzes the relationship between, on the one hand, the social class to which people belong or the fact of suffering to a greater or lesser degree the consequences of an economic crisis and, on the other hand, different psychosocial variables, such as socio-political behavior, subjective well-being, humor, dehumanization or trust. We currently have two research projects sponsored by Spanish institutions.
