PhD defence ceremony

The vulnerability-stress hypothesis states that vulnerability for stress interacts with environmental stressors in predicting vulnerability for psychosis. Karin Pos investigates the interactions between these innate and environmental factors on the road to psychosis.The aim is to gain insight into these interactions, focusing on predictors of single symptoms. Her second aim is to explore the effectiveness of two cognitive behavioural approaches to psychosis.
