Recent advances in developmental psychopathology


NB Language of instruction is English

Admission requirements



In this course both Dutch and foreign senior researchers are invited to present and discuss their research findings. Preparations for these meetings will entail a thorough study and preliminary discussion of the most significant recent publications either written by the speaker or concerning his/her area of research. Speakers from research as well as clinical fields are invited; they present research findings and data from their clinical work. Students prepare questions, based on both the presenter’s work and their own additional literature study. When possible, we try to facilitate students’ participation in an (international) conference as part of the course.
