dr. B.F. (Bertus) Jeronimus

Associate professor

Below an overview of projects in which I'm currently involved:

The Stress In Action gravitation consortium studies how daily stress can be measured reliably and how stress influences health. Individual variation in stress and personalized interventions have our special interest. In Groningen we synthesize theories on daily life stress and how this can increase risk for anxiety and depression disorders by reviewing the time series literature.

Happy Neurotics

My Veni study titled Lessons to be learned from happy neurotics was focused on highly neurotic people who also report happiness. In this project we developed the social network tool GENTLE, among others. Currently I continue this research nto the protective effects of high neuroticism with the Navigating Uncertainty: Decipher the Wisdom in Neurotic Adolescent Social Development (NUDS) consortium.

Recovery and Resiliency among Youth with Suicidal Thoughts or Behaviors.

De HowNutsAreTheDutch study (HoeGekIsNL) aims to create an empirically based representation of mental strengths and vulnerabilities, accounting for dimensionality and heterogeneity, interactivity between symptoms and strengths, and intra-individual variability. I focused primarily on personality and emotion dynamic patterns and the role of childhood abuse and neglect on adult health and well-being.

The Every-Child-Is-Different (Ieder-Kind-Is-Anders) study aims to assess strengths and vulnerabilities in children. What are the ingredients for well-being in youth? And how do parents think about this? The study has been prepared to study emotion dynamics and differentiation over childhood and adolescence.

Cohort studies I use

The TRAILS (TRacking Adolescents’ Individual Lives Survey) is an ongoing, multidisciplinary research on the psychological, social and physical development of adolescents and young adults.

De Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA) is designed to investigate the course of depression and anxiety disorders over the lifespan. 

The Lifelines Cohort study of the population of the North of the Netherlands.

Completed projects

The PsyCorona study tapped into thoughts, feelings and behaviors in the context of the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) disease (Covid-2019) pandemic (2020-22). Which citizens adhered to the public health measures? And who did not adhere and why? The PsyCorona study was a collaboration between 100 scientists with >60.000 participants from 115 countries around the world (5 continents). 

De NEMESIS-2 diary study is a longitudinal experience sampling project that was part of the 4th wave of the NEMESIS-2 project.

The Leefplezier project aims to create a self-management tool that helps elderly Dutch inhabitants (55+) to increase their subjective well-being and scientists to study ingrediënts for subjective well-being in the dynamics of daily life.
