Marie-Louise Kullberg obtained her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology in 2016 at Leiden University. Currently she works as a PhD student at the Clinical Psychology department under supervision of Bernet Elzinga and Charlotte van Schie. Her PhD-project is part of The Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA, https://www.nesda.nl/), mainly focusing on childhood abuse and neglect within the family and the risk and resilience to adult psychopathology in a sibling study design. Together with Maartje Schoorl and Joanne Mouthaan, Marie-Louise is working on a project concerning child trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder in physical injured patients.
The aim of her PhD-project is to elucidate the family-wide risk and sibling aggregation of childhood adversities (e.g. maltreatment, poor parental bonding, parental loss) and the association with depression and anxiety symptomatology in adult siblings, in order to gain knowledge about risk and resilience, within- and between family differences of childhood family adversities. For example, one of her research questions is " Why does an individual from a family get depressed whereas other siblings - with the same adverse childhood experiences - do not?”
