The program takes an evidence-based approach in that the course material covering these three areas is based on findings from (experimental) empirical research.
The research program informing the curriculum of the master-track Clinical Psychology includes diverse topics, for example:
- cognitive biases;
- social cognition in psychotic disorders;
- diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders;
- trauma, memory, and dissociation;
- eating disorders and unexplained physical somatic problems.
Master's thesis research projects may be carried out within the research group Experimental Psychotherapy and Psychopathology as well as at external institutions. In addition, students may take the initiative to arrange a clinical internship that counts towards course credit.
