Research Group Psychotraumatology

Our research team focusses on the impact of trauma and stressful situations on mental health, behaviour, and neurobiology.

You are here:

Projects include clinical studies on psychopathology as well as projects on central transmitter systems and neurotrophins in preclinical models of stress.

In addition, we participate in an evaluation study investigating treatment outcome of our out-patient interventions after severely violent attacks. This multi-center study is supported by the Bundesminiserium für Arbeit und Soziales.

Research interests include aspects of migration and transcultural aspects in traumatized patients.
