Leerdoelen After the course, the student can/has:
- describe the role of various information-processing processes in psychopathology,
- describe the most often used experimental paradigms in the field,
- provide a well substantiated view on the tenability of the models discussed based on empirical results,
- developed a critical attitude towards the theoretical and clinical applicability of the models discussed.
Omschrijving Recent theoretical models assume that information-processing processes such as attention, memory and interpretation play an important causal and/or maintenance role in psychopathological phenomena. In order to test such cognitive models for tenability, in recent decades a series of specific experimental procedures have been developed. Taking specific disorders and symptoms like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and dissociation, this module will critically examine recent cognitive models. Particular attention will be paid to the methodological details and theoretical and clinical relevance of the most common experimental procedures. Students will hand in an individually written essay each week.
