Annemiek Harder has developed a new treatment method to ensure behavioural change among at-risk youth. The method is based on motivational interviewing and is intended to increase the willingness of the youth to change their behaviour. This in turn increases the chances that after the treatment they will actually choose not to exhibit their problem behaviour any more.
Harder is an Associate Professor at the Department of Orthopedagogy. Her expertise concerns the following topics (a.o): youth with behavioral problems, antisocial or delinquent behaviour; families with one or more children in out-of-home care; residential youth care, specifically secure residential care.
