La Sigmund Freud PrivatUniversität (Sigmund Freud University) attribuisce alla ricerca, fin dalla sua fondazione, un ruolo di assoluta importanza nella formazione degli studenti, nella convinzione che essa funga da ponte tra gli anni di studio e apprendimento e il passaggio alla professione.

Forte della presenza in diverse sedi in Europa, la Sigmund Freud University svolge progetti di ricerca in molteplici ambiti della psicologia, spaziando dagli studi metodologici e socio-culturali a quelli clinici e terapeutici.

L’attività di ricerca del Dipartimento di Psicologia di Milano della Sigmund Freud University occupa una parte rilevante della vita accademica e professionale dei docenti, le cui indagini privilegiano l’ambito psicologico-clinico, con particolare riguardo a: dipendenze, ansia, rabbia, disturbi alimentari e disturbi di apprendimento.
