Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Ο Αλέξανδρος Λόρδος είναι εγγεγραμμένος Κλινικός Ψυχολόγος, και Λέκτορας Κλινικής Ψυχολογίας στο Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου. Κατέχει πτυχίο Σύγχρονων και Μεσαιωνικών Γλωσσών από το Πανεπιστήμιο του Cambridge, πτυχίο Ψυχολογίας από το Πανεπιστήμιο Κρήτης, μεταπτυχιακό στη Συμβουλευτική από το Πανεπιστήμιο του Durham, και διδακτορικό στην Κλινική Ψυχολογία από το Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου. Ο Δρ. Λόρδος είναι εκ των ιδρυτών, και ο τέως Διευθυντής Έρευνας, του Κέντρου Βιώσιμης Ειρήνης και Δημοκρατικής Ανάπτυξης (SeeD) δια του οποίου έχει εγκαινιάσει ερευνητικές συνεργασίες με διάφορους διεθνείς οργανισμούς, όπως UNICEF, World Bank, Interpeace, UNDP, και το Office for Transition Initiatives της USAID. Διετέλεσε συντονιστής ερευνητικών προγραμμάτων σε χώρες της Ευρώπης, της Αφρικής και της Ασίας, συγκεκριμένα σε Ουκρανία, Νότιο Σουδάν, Ρουάντα, Λιβύη, Μολδαβία, Βοσνία-Ερζεγοβίνη, Λιβερία, Ιράκ, Αφγανιστάν, Νεπάλ, Μαλαισία, Ανατολικό Τιμόρ και Κύπρο. Υπήρξε επισκέπτης επιστήμονας στη Σχολή Δημόσιας Υγείας του Πανεπιστημίου Harvard, ενώ υπηρετεί ως ανώτερος εμπειρογνώμονας του διεθνούς οργανισμού Interpeace για θέματα ψυχικής υγείας στο πλαίσιο της οικοδόμησης ειρήνης. Στο Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου, διευθύνει την ερευνητική του μονάδα, το «Εργαστήριο Δεξιοτήτων και Ανθεκτικότητας», ενώ ταυτόχρονα συμβάλλει στη διδασκαλία και εποπτεία προπτυχιακών, μεταπτυχιακών και διδακτορικών φοιτητών στο Τμήμα Ψυχολογίας.
Με ενδιαφέρει η διερεύνηση των κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικών δεξιοτήτων (Socioemotional Skills), και πως η απόκτηση τους συμβάλλει στη διασφάλιση της ψυχικής υγείας, στη βελτίωση των προοπτικών απασχόλησης, και στην εποικοδομητική πολιτότητα. Επίσης σημαντικό ερώτημα είναι, με ποίο τρόπο οι κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικές δεξιότητες συμβάλλουν στην ανθεκτικότητα έναντι διαφόρων αντιξοοτήτων, είτε αυτές αφορούν το μικροσύστημα είτε το μακροσύστημα ενός ατόμου; Συγκεκριμένα, εξετάζω τα πιο κάτω: Πρώτο, πως συμβάλλουν συγκεκριμένες κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικές δεξιότητες (π.χ. συνειδητότητα, αντοχή στη δυσφορία, διανοητική ταπείνωση, δημιουργικότητα, προσανατολισμός στο μέλλον, νοοτροπία ανάπτυξης, επικοινωνία, ηγετικότητα, αποδοχή της διαφορετικότητας) στην επίτευξη συγκεκριμένων θετικών καταστάσεων, όπως αναφέρθηκαν πιο πάνω; Δεύτερο, πως μπορούμε να αξιολογήσουμε με αξιοπιστία και εγκυρότητα τις ψυχοσυναισθηματικές δεξιότητες, μέσα από κλίμακες αυτό-αναφοράς, προβολικά εργαλεία και γνωστικές δοκιμασίες; Και τέλος, πως αποκτώνται οι κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικές δεξιότητες, μέσα από αναπτυξιακές διεργασίες, διδασκαλία, καθοδήγηση, ενεργοποίηση, κοινωνική μάθηση, ενεργό μάθηση ή αλλιώς, σε ποικίλα πλαίσια της καθημερινότητας όπως: οικογένεια, εκπαιδευτικά ιδρύματα, χώρους εργασίας, αθλητισμό και πολιτισμό, καθώς επίσης και υπό συνθήκες κρίσης, όπως σε διαιρεμένες κοινωνίες, ανθρωπιστικές κρίσεις, ριζοσπαστικοποιημένες κοινωνικές ομάδες, νέους με αυξημένο δείκτη ψυχοκοινωνικού κινδύνου, κέντρα ψυχικής υγείας, κέντρα αποκατάστασης, και σε φυλακές;
 
Πέραν από το επίπεδο της ατομικής αλλαγής, με ενδιαφέρει το πως αυτή η γνώση μπορεί να τύχει αξιοποίησης στο πλαίσιο μιας πολυ-συστημικής υποδομής δημόσιας υγείας για κοινωνική ανθεκτικότητα και πρόληψη της βίας, όπου η αλλαγή στο ατομικό επίπεδο, π.χ. μέσα από την απόκτηση κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικών δεξιοτήτων, συμπληρώνεται από ευρύτερες διεργασίες κοινωνικής αλλαγής, στο επίπεδο της οικογένειας, της κοινωνικο-οικονομικής ανάπτυξης, και των θεσμικών μεταρρυθμίσεων, όπου οι κοινωνικοσυναισθηματικές δεξιότητες αποτελούν ένα ανάμεσα σε ποικίλους παράγοντες αλλαγής.

Profile Information

Alexandros Lordos is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology at the University of Cyprus. He holds a BA in Modern and Medieval Languages from the University of Cambridge, a BA in Psychology from the University of Crete, an MA in Counselling Studies from the University of Durham, and a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Cyprus. Dr Lordos is one of the founders and the former Research Director of the Centre for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development (SeeD), through which he established research partnerships with several international organizations, including UNICEF, the World Bank, Interpeace, UNDP, and USAID’s Office for Transition Initiatives. He has served as principal investigator or co-principal investigator in research projects across several countries in Europe, Africa and Asia, specifically in Ukraine, South Sudan, Rwanda, Libya, Moldova, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Liberia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nepal, Malaysia, East Timor and Cyprus. Dr Lordos is a former Senior Fellow of Harvard Humanitarian Initiative at Harvard University’s School of Public Health, and the Senior Advisor of Interpeace on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support for Peace. At the University of Cyprus, he directs the Skills and Resilience Lab, while he contributes to the teaching and supervision of BA, MA and PhD students in the Psychology Department.
I am interested in investigating how the acquisition of socioemotional competencies can contribute to mental health, employability and constructive citizenship outcomes, as well as in strengthening resilience against micro-systemic and macro-systemic adversities. Research questions I am currently focusing on include the following: How do specific socio-emotional competencies (e.g. mindfulness; distress tolerance; intellectual humility; creativity; future orientation; growth mindset; communication; leadership; tolerance of diversity) map out to distinct outcomes, as described above? How can we more robustly assess socio-emotional competencies, through self-report, projective, and task-based measurement modalities? And finally, how can socioemotional competencies be nurtured, taught, mentored, activated, socially learnt, actively learnt or otherwise acquired in various everyday contexts such as the family, education establishments, the workplace, or through culture and sports, as well as in more challenging and crisis-associated contexts such as conflict-affected countries, humanitarian emergencies, radicalized social groups, high-risk youth populations, mental health clinics, rehabilitation centres, and correctional facilities?
 
Beyond the level of individual transformation, I am interested in how such knowledge can be integrated in the context of cross-sectoral and multi-systemic public health infrastructures for community resilience and violence prevention, where change at the personal level, e.g. through acquisition of socioemotional competencies, is complemented by wider social processes of community change, at the level of family process, socioeconomic development, and institutional reform, where socioemotional competence is one among several contributors of change.
