PhD-project named ‘Cognitive Bias Modification in treatment for alcohol addiction’ in collaboration with Saxion University of Applied Sciences, University of Amsterdam and Tactus, institution for addiction treatment.

By using CBM-training cognitive motivational biases can be changed. The main focus in this PhD-project is a CBM-technique that is called Approach Avoidance Task (AAT) which tries to change the automatic tendencies by training the approach and avoidance tendencies that alcohol addicted people have towards alcohol and non-alcohol. The AAT will be offered in combination with treatment for problem drinkers to see whether it produces more effect.


External PhD-student from September 2014 until September 2018.


To date, no publications from the PhD-project.
