Robert J. DeRubeis is één van de keynote speakers van het wereldcongres Psychotherapy , stronger through diversity. De NVP organiseert dit internationale congres van 7 tot 9 juni in de Beurs van Berlage te Amsterdam. Met trots stellen we de komende weken op deze plaats een aantal keynotes aan u voor.
Robert J. DeRubeis is the Samuel H. Preston Term Professor in the Social Sciences and Professor of Psychology in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. He has published more than 150 empirical and methodological papers and book chapters on the phenomena that cause and maintain mood disorders, as well as therapeutic processes and mechanisms that account for change and resilience. His team has recently developed an approach to precision mental health that yields a Personalized Advantage Index (PAI) for any given patient. In application, the PAI will yield treatment recommendations that promises to increase the effectiveness of mental health delivery.
The promise of evidence-based personalized mental health practice
Data from Randomized Comparative Trials can generate unbiased estimates of average treatment effects. RCT data also contain rich material that can inform personalized mental health. Research on treatment selection, sudden gains, and patient response patterns, conducted by the presenter and his collaborators, will illustrate this theme.
