About Denise Bodden[email protected]
Denise Bodden was born and raised in Maastricht. She studied psychology and got her Phd at the University of Maastricht. Currently, she is an assistant professor at the department of Developmental Psychopathology at the Radboud University Nijmegen and she also works as a researcher at the University of Utrecht. She investigates the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of interventions for children and their parents. Her research includes the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of individual CBT (denken + doen = durven) versus family CBT in children with anxiety disorders, the effectiveness of intensive home-based treatment for Multi-problem families and the effectiveness of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in parents. Her recent research investigates the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of individual CBT (Doepressie cursus) versus treatment as usual in clinically depressed adolescents. Her drive is to optimize interventions for children with psychopathology (especially anxiety and depression); do interventions work? For whom? And why do they work?
