Experimental Psychopathology and Psychotherapy (Prof. B. Kleim)

Our research investigates key features of anxiety disorders and posttraumatic stress disorder, e.g., intrusive emotional memories or negative cognitions. Our aim is to translate findings of these and other basic science findings for innovative clinical application and optimize current psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). We are also interested in what makes individuals resilient in the face of stress and traumatic events and, in turn, in how we can translate such findings in developing evidence-based and just-in-time prevention and intervention programs.
