Dr. Grace Fayombo Lecturer Being a developmental psychologist who is also equipped with counselling skills, my early research topics were focused on adolescents’ developmental problems such as alcohol and substance abuse and the intervention programmes. However, it becomes necessary for me to also investigate problems in the areas of academic achievement and lecture attendance which informed my further research into strategies for motivating my students to attend lectures and to be actively engaged during lectures, in order to learn and achieve academically. Other areas of interest also include emotional intelligence, psychological resilience, personality traits, social and moral development which are also vital for successful transition from adolescence to adulthood stage. Presently, I am investigating the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of Nigerian and Caribbean adolescents to expand literature in this area. Additionally, psychology has not really received a good attention in the area of research in the Caribbea Contact U.W.I
