Jessica is a clinical psychologist and Ph.D. Candidate in “Social Sciences: Interactions, Communication and Cultural Constructions” at the University of Padua. She is also concluding her training in the Interactionist School of Psychotherapy in Padua.

Her main interests concern the processes of identity construction and the dynamics of change in psychotherapy and in public health services, the relations between gender, body and sexuality, the epistemological reflection and its implications in the social sciences and in psychology and qualitative methods.

From the perspectives of social constructionism and symbolic interactionism, she is now working on transgender identities and psychological practices in gender transitions, on the experiences of hearing voices and in juridical psychology.
