PhD, Doctor in Clinical Psychology
Sylvia Martin is a researcher at CRB. She specialised in cognitive-emotional behavioural therapies after obtaining classical university training in philosophy and clinical psychology. She obtained the title of Doctor in Clinical Psychology in Psychopathology from the University of Aix Marseille, France, in 2019. Since 2016, she has been working as a psychotherapist, investing her clinical skills and knowledge in patient follow-up in institutions and private practice. Sylvia Martin was initially trained in cognitive behavioural therapy, but her practice intersects with the emotional-rational therapy approach of Albert Ellis, the cognitive work of Aaron Beck, and more recent therapeutic approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectal behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based approaches and the radically open dialectal therapy founded by Lynch & Co.
As a researcher, Sylvia Martin specialised in the treatment of personality disorders, impulsivity, and consciousness. She is involved in developing innovative care practices to improve psychotherapy care in France and internationally. She is the founder of the ECCCLORE group that develops training in cognitive and behavioural skills related to the observation and regulation of emotions.
