Description

The advancement of science has the potential to improve all things: societies, nature, politics, medicine and, finally, the lives of every human being. This is the core motivation guiding Sullivan’s work. His current research concerns dehumanization, i.e. the denial of one’s humanity, of psychiatric patients and more specifically of patients with severe alcohol-use disorder. The goal of this research project is to improve the fundamental understanding of dehumanization as well as the treatment and well-being of patients.
