Practical matters How to find us dr. A.R.E. (Anna Roos) Zandstra, PhD


A well-established risk factor for emotional and behavioural psychopathology is the experience of chronic stress. However, there are large inter-individual differences in outcome. Elucidation of the factors that determine the impact of chronic stress on psychopathology may further our understanding of who is most at risk and may have implications for prevention or early intervention. Our overall goal is to identify biological markers that may be associated with a favourable or unfavourable long-term outcome in adolescents that are exposed to chronic stress. This study is embedded within TRacking Adolescents’ Individual Lives Surveys (TRAILS).
