Projects

The projects developed by HR Lab can be divided mainly into two areas: Core Research and Applications.

Core Research includes the study of argumentative practices in clinical settings; the identification and description of dialogue moves in relation to different communicative aims; the identification and description of relevant dialogic strategies in relation to different clinical settings and clinical goals.

Applications includes different ways in which results from the core research can be translated to the professional or public contexts.
