Interests: Jonas Schöndorf’s scientific interests lie in the field of stress research. The influences of pathogenic and protective factors of urban life on the mental health and well-being of city dwellers is central to his research. This includes the effects of discrimination and exclusion on the one hand and social support on the other hand on the mental health of marginalised groups. In addition, he is interested in uncovering those mechanisms that are involved in the development of stress-associated diseases. In line with his research his psychotherapeutic work in Berlin is designed to strengthen individual resilience and to deal with subjectively stressful and traumatic life events and circumstances.
