Public Lecture

Current treatments for emotional disorders are not as effective as we had hoped, which may be due to the inadequate conceptualization of those disorders. We went back to the drawing table and evaluated whether improvements can be made regarding the way we conceptualize emotional disorders. In this talk I will discuss some of our recent findings regarding conceptual difficulties in the DSM approach to emotional disorders, the overlap between depression and anxiety and the neglect of positive affect. I will conclude with discussing possibilities in personalizing care for emotional disorders, and a new approach to psychodiagnosis.
