SFU-Paris is committed to offer a complete academic education, integrating a research center specific to psychology. Professor Paul-Laurent Assoun joined us, in September 2019, as the Chairman of the Scientific Council and has been responsible for our research lab.
To understand the choice of projects selected, it is necessary to briefly present the general problematic of the research field which revolves around the BODY-SUBJECT-CULTURE trilogy.
Laboratory activities are based and developed in a form of doctoral seminars that allow to introduce to the methodology of research and problematization. These seminars, at the rate of one to two monthly sessions, welcome professors who wish to present their research and bring out projects, with a view of pooling research interests.
Currently, seminars are focused on the transhumanism thematic, a current which announces an anthropological revolution linked to the appearance of biotechnologies, prosthetic techniques, which we group around the idea of “augmented human”.

- The current situation of psychotherapy regarding its care devices and the problem of remediation
- The cultural impact of these changes for psychotherapeutic practice
