Clinical Psychology & Psychotherapy


Our research focus is on the translation of scientific knowledge to clinical practice. Our aims are to increase knowledge about specific patient groups and to improve the effectiveness of treatments of psychological disorders, including anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders and PTSD. This will be done by conducting RCTs in regular mental health centers to study both treatment effects and mechanisms of change, in which new treatments will be directly compared to the current treatments of first choice for a particular disorder.
