Uitgebreide vaknaam Deficits, distress, and disorders: Advanced Research Methods
Leerdoelen After the course, the student can/has:
- describe important paradigms and methods used in the field
- provide a well substantiated view on the tenability of the methods discussed, based on empirical results
- developed a critical attitude towards the theory and application of the methods discussed
Omschrijving A counterpoint to Lewin’s famous quote that “there is nothing so practical as a good theory” is found in the title of a recent paper – “There is nothing so theoretical as a good method”. The main point of that paper – that methodologies determine the types of questions we can ask in psychological science – underscores the need for researchers to develop knowledge of and expertise in the methods relevant for their area of research. This course provides an important step in developing advanced knowledge and expertise regarding methods relevant to the domain of Distress, Deficits, and Disorders. Examples of methods covered include psycho physiology, implicit measures using reaction time, behavioral observation, and Ecological Momentary Assessment. In order to (a) learn to apply the recently acquired theoretical knowledge and (b) promote a critical attitude, individual assignments form an important part of the course. This is an intensive course in that an assignment has to be completed each week. The weekly assignments will consist of essays related to the week’s readings, the lecture, practical exercises, applications of the methods, and interpretation of method-specific data.
