Jan H. Kamphuis, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist: is full professor of 'psychological assessment and personality' at the clinical program of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). He is a graduate of the clinical psychology program of the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied as a Fullbright scholar. After finishing his internship at Duke University Medical Center (DUMC), he worked as a cognitive therapist/ senior researcher at the mood disorders program of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam. In 1998, he joined the faculty of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). His current main research interests are in clinical personality assessment and in links between personality and psychopathology. These interests have led him to specific applications in forensic psychology, most notably stalking.He has published articles and chaptersoninnovations in clinical assessment, anxiety disorders, and the psychology of stalking. He teaches clinical personality assessment at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate training levels.

Current research projects include a RCT on the effectiveness of Therapeutic Assessment at the Viersprong clinic for patients with personality pathology awaiting therapy, the development of the Dutch multidimensional Personality Questionnaire (Tellegen & Waller, 2008), and optimizing risk assessment among sexual offenders on the basis of archival data (Van der Hoeven Kliniek).

Jan Kamphuis is a fellow of the Society of Personality Assessment and is certified in Therapeutic Assessment.
