Biography and Research Interests

Marleen van Doorn is a PhD-student at the Radboud University in Nijmegen and studies the effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) manualized program for clinically anxious children. The main aim of this project is to conduct a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) to evaluate the effectiveness of the ‘Thinking + Doing = Daring’ (TDD) manual for clinically anxious children (8-12 years old) in ‘real world’ clinical agencies. Two potential mediators of change will be examined in the current study: therapeutic alliance and mother-child interactions. Currently, the last follow-up data of the children is being collected and the first analyses of the data are being processed.
