Workshops on Diversity

You are all also invited to attend the workshops. The essence of Clinical Psychology is studying individual differences in many dimensions. Based on differences normality and abnormality are defined, but these boundaries can be influenced by differences in culture, sexuality, sexual preferences, personality, norms and values. The theme of the workshops on the symposium is therefore Diversity. Workshops will be given by experts and will answer Clinical Psychology questions on Diversity such as: Stigmatization: mental disorder or uniqueness (speaker from Samen Sterk Zonder Stigma)? Which values do you unconsciously apply to male or female clients that may underlie biases in diagnostics (speaker confirmed from the Rutgers center)? How do you deal with differences in culture in therapy? How do different generations vary in norms and values on sexuality? Which different diagnostic tools can be applied and how will diagnosis differ applying the DSM versus network based diagnosis? More information on workshops will follow in January, keep an eye out for our posters and

Hopefully, you are as enthusiastic as we are!

Kind regards, On behalf of the symposium committee,

Coordinators: Mitzy Kennis, Josita Versteeg and Henk Schut
Bachelor students: Jiska van Rijswijk, Eva Vethman, Fabiënne Wachters
