Practical I: Skills for Clinical Research


Course Objective

Within this module, students acquire specific techniques and expertise
for conducting research with clients.

Course Content

Clinical and developmental psychopathology is an interdisciplinary
field, in which a broad array of research techniques and paradigms are
used. Students will learn specific (non-generic) skills or techniques,
under intensive tutoring by experts in these methods. Before the start
of the course a description will be given of the topics that are
available (Canvas). Each student has to choose 2 of those topics.

Teaching Methods

Small groups of students are tutored and trained in two research
techniques by expert researchers. The dates / times of the meetings will
be decided during the first meeting with the lecturer.

Method of Assessment

Assignments and/or a paper, dependent on the technique. Students should
pass both techniques (grade 5.5 or higher). When students fail one of
the techniques the
positive result will remain valid for the year they have been obtained
and the following (academic) year.


Depends on the specific subject.
