Clinical psychology: trauma, grief and anxiety disorders

In this research programme we aim to systematically uncover the processes underlying:

  • posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • grief
  • anxiety disorders, especially obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders (OCD)

Research lines

  • Experimental Psychopathology
    This research line focuses on posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders, using experimental paradigms and prospective longitudinal studies. We collaborate with mental health organizations, including Altrecht, particularly the Altrecht Academic Anxiety Center.
  • Trauma and Grief
    This research line relies mainly on non-experimental methods, but also on laboratory techniques.
