How can scientist-practitioners bridge the gap between clinical practice and science? How can clinical practice benefit from EPP-research? 13 – 14 October 2022
EPP symposium 145

How can scientist-practitioners bridge the gap between clinical practice and science? How can clinical practice benefit from EPP-research?

Psychotherapy is generally effective for most mental disorders, although there is ample room for further improvement such as enhancing treatment acceptance, treatment gains, and relapse prevention. Here, fundamental and clinical science is important to provide inspiration and new avenues for evidence-based treatments. Nonetheless, the translation from the science to clinic (and the other way around) can be highly challenging and fraught with problems. Experimental psychopathology is uniquely situated in this intersection between science and practice. In this symposium, different prominent EPP-researchers, several of which also work as active practitioners, will talk about their research translating findings from the lab to the clinic, and how clinical practice can both inspire and benefit from EPP-research.
