Personal information

Sascha  Struijs

As a PHD student at GGZinGeest I get to elaborate on the work that I have done during my research master. For the coming three years I will analyse data from the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA) with a focus on cognition and depression.

As a psychologist at Ready for Change addiction care, I guide addicts in their recovery from substance abuse and substance dependence. I provide psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy and group dynamic therapy to groups of six to eight high functioning addicts. In individual sessions I also use motivational interviewing techniques to try and breach dysfunctional behavioral and thought patterns.
