Introduction/ Research

In my work as a PhD candidate at the department of Clinical Psychology at Utrecht University, I study body image disturbances in adolescent girls with anorexia nervosa. Furthermore, I investigate the role of anxiety-related processes (i.e., intolerance of uncertainty) within these body image disturbances. Together with my colleague Lot Sternheim, I coordinated the translation and dissemination of a manual for those caring for a loved one with an eating disorder entitled “Samen de Eetstoornis aanpakken: Bewezen effectieve vaardigheden om je kind of partner te ondersteunen”, written by dr. prof. Janet Treasure (KCL, UK). We are currently piloting a training based on this book and researching its feasibility and effectiveness for carers in the Netherlands.
