Archive for November, 2008

The Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy and its International Institute for the Advanced Studies of Psychotherapy and Applied Mental Health are a Pole of Excellence in the Romanian academic and research field.

Based on the support of the Romanian Government (by competition) and on national and international grants, the Department has developed two major world-class research platforms that will be fully operational by fall 2009:

  • The Platform for Robotherapy and Virtual Reality Therapy (see at http://www.psytech.ro);
  • The Platform for Advanced Imaging – EEG/fMRI – in Clinical Cognitive Sciences (http://www.psychotherapy.ro).

 

            In order (1) to integrate these two major Research Platforms, (2)  to connect/integrate them to top international networks in the field, and (3) to build a world-class research team, the following training and research sessions are planned for 2009 at the Clinical Department:

  • October 2008: Dr. Ovidiu Andronesi, Harvard Medical School – Introduction to clinical neuroimaging;
  • January 2009: Dr. Giorgie Bonmassar, Harvard Medical School – Advanced EEG and combining EEG with fMRI  analyses;
  • April 2009: Mount Sinai School of Medicine/Cornell University, and Yale University – Clinical applications; fMRI and adult;
  • June 2009: Dr. Nadine Gaab, Harvard Medical School – Clinical applications; fMRI and children;
  • September 2009: Dr. Steve Smith & his team, Oxford University – Advanced analysis methods in neuroimaging.

 

Additionally, our team members will participate in focused training/research internship in the above and other (e.g., Pisa University) world-class research institutions.

 

By this strategy it is hoped that, by fall 2009, the Department will have a world-class research team, integrated in the top international networks, ready to approach cutting-edge and frontier research, in major interdisciplinary fields, confronting with major scientific questions and problems.

  • Meeting of the Minds Conference Series
    “New Frontiers in Evidence Based Psychology”

    7th – 9th November 2008
    Cluj-Napoca, Romania

    The Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy and its International Institute for the Advanced Studies of Psychotherapy and Applied Mental Health are a Pole of Excellence in the Romanian academic and research field.

    Based on the support of the Romanian Government (by competition) and on national and international grants, the Department has developed two major world-class research platforms that will be fully operational by fall 2009:
    • The Platform for Robotherapy and Virtual Reality Therapy (see at http://www.psytech.ro);
    • The Platform for Advanced Imaging – EEG/fMRI – in Clinical Cognitive Sciences (http://www.psychotherapy.ro).

    This meeting, funded by the Romanian Government (Ministry of Education and Research) brings together top scientists in order to foresee (predict and shape) the cutting-edge developments in the field of evidence-based psychology. Three major topics will be discussed: (1) evidence-based assessment and therapy; (2) evidence-based training; (3) genetic counseling and its place in the clinical/counseling/psychotherapy field. We hope that the conclusions of this meeting will shape a research strategy to be run on the two major research platforms of the Department.

    The entire event (e.g., presentations, discussions) will be videoconferenced and can be followed in Zorgo lecture hall (No. 7, Sindicatelor Street) and online.
