Acceptance and commitment therapy in real life in psychosis
Taken en verantwoordelijkheden
The Center for Contextual Psychiatry has an extensive research line on the development of Ecological Momentary Interventions - or extending the treatment into the real world. One such intervention is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in real life. We are currently running a clinical trial in people at ultrahigh risk for psychosis (INTERACT - www.interact-studie.eu). In the current project, we aim to extend this research line to 1) study the efficacy of ACT in daily life in patients already suffering from a psychotic disorder, and 2) investigate the active component of the ACT in daily treatment.
The successful candidate has a (research) Master degree in Psychology or Social/Health Sciences, Medicine, or Biomedical Sciences, with a strong interest in clinical research. We are looking for someone with a clinical research interest and preferentially some experience in working with people suffering from psychopathology. The successful candidate has an innovative and creative personality, strong social skills and the ability to independently generate novel solutions in methodologically challenging areas. The candidate should have good command of Dutch (oral) and English (written and oral). Motivated students of all nationalities, who have the ability and desire to work in an interdisciplinary and international research environment with a strong commitment to clinical research are invited to apply.
Salaries for PhD students are competitive by international standards. A contract for one year will be offered, which is renewable for another three years after positive evaluation. Starting date is July 1st, 2017.
