Manja Koenders is assistant professor at the Clinical Psychology Unit. Further she works as a research coordinator of the Bipolar Netherlands Cohort (BINCO) Study. Besides working at the section of Clinical Psychology, she works part-time as a psychologist at the specialized bipolar outpatient clinic at Psyq Rotterdam.
My research focuses on psychological predictors of the bipolar disease course. My PhD research (finished in 2016) focused on psychosocial predictors of the bipolar disease course, such as stress and social support. My current interest is specifically focused on the role of emotion regulation problems and personality factors in bipolar disorders. Within a large multicenter cohort study (BINCO) we will collect data on these psychological factors and we will study its effects on the disease course and aim to identify targets for new psychological interventions for bipolar patients.
