Sofie Vindevogel works as post-doctoral assistant at the Department of Special Education at Ghent University and is affiliated to the Centre for Children in Vulnerable Situations. She obtained her PhD in Educational Sciences with a dissertation on former child soldiers in northern Uganda, focusing on experienced challenges and resources in the transition from military to civilian life. Her current empirical research explores further how children, youth, families and communities in (post-)conflict situations deal with adversity and which resources contribute to resilience. Her theoretical work concentrates on the comparison and integration of theories, models and measures of trauma, stress and resilience.
