Nieuwe aio-vertegenwoordiger VNOP

Tijdens de Algemene Ledenvergadering op 17 mei j.l. is Jochem Spaans (http://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/staffmembers/jochem-spaans) voorgedragen en benoemd tot nieuwe aio-vertegenwoordiger voor het VNOP-bestuur. De belangrijkste taken van de aio-vertegenwoordiger zijn het behartigen van de belangen van alle aio’s binnen de VNOP en daarnaast het informeren van de aio’s over zaken als cursusaanbod, financiële en andere relevante zaken. Verder helpt de aio-vertegenwoordiger mee met het organiseren van de aio-dagen. Jochem, van harte welkom en veel succes!

Om de communicatielijnen tussen Jochem als aio-vertegenwoordiger in het VNOP-bestuur en de verschillende universiteiten kort te houden acht het VNOP-bestuur het wijs om per participerende universiteit een aio-contactpersoon aan te stellen. Deze heeft directer contact met de lokale aio’s en makkelijker toegang tot de lokale cursusinformatie. Ook zou deze persoon kunnen meehelpen met het organiseren van de aio-activiteiten. Daarom hierbij een oproep: graag ontvangt het VNOP-bestuur namen van potentiële contactpersonen. Namen kunnen gemaild worden aan Jacqueline Tenkink via j.f.tenkink-dejong@uu.nl Graag voor 1 september.

Mini-symposium: ‘New Insights into the Structure of Psychopathology’

Wednesday June 29th from12.30-16.30 + drinks afterwards
Location: Boothzaal, Utrecht University Library. Free admission.

We kindly invite you to attend (parts of) our symposium in which we present new insights into the structure of psychopathology. This symposium is inspired by recent attempts to examine the structure of common mental disorders, either by implying that the propensity to develop any common mental disorder can be summarized by one underlying syndrome (i.e., the general psychopathology factor or the general factor of the Dysregulation Profile) or by examining complex symptom networks, in which disorder components reinforce each other and jointly form a network of symptoms.

Our keynote speakers are Dr. Praveetha Patalay from UCL London, who won the The British Psychological Society’s Outstanding Doctoral Research Contributions Award for 2016 and Dr. Angélique Cramer from University of Amsterdam, who obtained a VENI grant, for her highly innovative “Network psychometrics” project proposal.

Confirmed presentations:

Dr. Praveetha Patalay
‘A general factor of psychopathology in childhood and adolescence: is it a useful construct?’

Dr. Angélique Cramer
‘Conceptual and statistical models to examine the structure of psychopathology’

Marike Deutz, MSc, from Utrecht University
‘The Dysregulation Profile in childhood and adolescence: a broad dysregulation syndrome’

The symposium is free of charge. All information about this symposium and registration can be found on this website: https://sites.google.com/site/symposiumpsychopathology/ We kindly ask you to share this invitation with other researchers, students, and clinicians who may be interested in attending the symposium. For any questions: please e-mail us at symposiumpsychopathology16@gmail.com
