Dr Karantzas essentially takes a social/life-developmental psychology approach to the study of three areas of interest:
- Close interpersonal relationships (romantic and filial) and family caregiving,
- Psychosocial development across the life-span and the impact of life transitions on psychological adjustment, and
- The impact of maladaptive personal development and quality of athlete-coach relationship on athletic performance.
