How to find us prof. dr. A. (Anna) Lichtwarck-Aschoff

prof. dr. A. Lichtwarck-Aschoff


I am born in the southern part of Germany and moved all the way up to the northern part of the Netherlands to study psychology in Groningen. I received my PhD from the University of Groningen at the department of Developmental Psychology in 2008. From 2008 until 2020 I worked as an assistant professor in the department Developmental Psychopathology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. In January 2021 I started as a full prof and chair of the Child and Family Welfare unit in Groningen. Generally, I am not so interested in whether certain interventions work but howthey work. That is, I am mainly focusing on general processes and mechanisms of change informed by non-linear dynamic systems theories across diagnostic categories and different treatment modalities. Eventually I hope that by understanding individual processes of change we will be able to personalize and tailor treatments to the specific and changing needs of individual clients. In 2020 I received a Vidi grant which will start in September 2021.
