Grant ZonMw Nationaal Plan Hoofdzaken

Michelle Servaas (health psychologist and senior researcher) and Harriëtte Riese (Associate Professor) are very pleased to share with you the news that they have been awarded a grant from ZonMw (program Nationaal Plan Hoofdzaken) for the project named:

\”Digitalization of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: From treatment room to daily life through co-design\”

The aim of the project is to make thought records (G-schema’s) from cognitive behavioral therapy digitally available on the smartphone by building it as a module in Personalized Treatment by Real-time Assessment (PETRA) within RoQua. A feedback module is also designed to comprehensively visualize the digital data, so that it can be discussed effectively during psychological treatment.

The systematically collected data, through the thought record (G-schema) module, will provide a wealth of personalized information about the client\’s problems in his/her daily life. Both digitally completing the thought record and visualizing the data in a feedback report will increase the effectiveness of psychological treatment and thus promote quality of life and recovery of clients with a psychiatric disorder.

Within this project, we will collaborate with Lentis (Sanne Booij; senior researcher at the Center for Integrated Psychiatry (CIP) and Nina Vollbehr; health psychologist, team leader for substantive matters and PhD candidate CIP) and GGZ Friesland (Sander de Vos; senior researcher and scientific coordinator) and an expert with lived experience (Annemiek Lely; ambassador at the Hersenstichting).

Fetsje de Jong joined the team and has started as a the scientific coordinator of the project. She also works as a psychologist at Fier.
