- About Deakin
Gery Karantzas is a Lecturer in the School of Psychology and a member of the Centre for Health and Risk Behaviours and Mental Wellbeing (CHARM). He teaches across undergraduate and 4th year programs and supervises higher degree students. His research interests centre around close personal relationships (family and romantic) and personal and social development.
Dr Karantzas essentially takes a social/life-developmental psychology approach to the study of three areas of interest: (1) Close interpersonal relationships (romantic and filial) and family caregiving, (2) psychosocial development across the life-span and the impact of life transitions on psychological adjustment, and (3) the impact of maladaptive personal development and quality of athlete-coach relationship on athletic performance.
