I work partly for Jill Lobbestael to support her in any needs she has for her research. As a research employee, my specialties are among others:
brainstorming, designing, implementing and executing the logistical aspects of new studies.
experienced in supervising and coordinating (international) studies.
experience in testing participants and in administrative tasks surrounding studies.
support for other researchers in the scientific foundations of their work, substantive tasks and supporting them with SPSS, such as carrying out literature studies, testing concepts of questionnaires, checking publications, designing syntaxes, statistical calculations etc.
- Suzanne Brugman:
As a PhD student, my research focuses on identifying dynamic predictors of aggressive behavior. Specifically, it is aimed to examine whether cognitive biases, automatic aggression associations, and self-control could be candidate predictors of future violent incidents in forensic patients. Aggressive behavior of patients is assessed by using a laboratory paradigm. Also, it is tested whether the cognitive processes predict in-clinic violent incidents. I am supervised by Jill Lobbestael (co-promotor), Prof Dr Arnoud Arntz (promotor) and Prof Dr Alexander Sack (promotor).
- Martijn van Teffelen
I am currently working as a PhD student under supervision from Jill Lobbestael (co-promotor), Marisol Voncken (co-promotor) and Frenk Peeters (promotor) at CPS. My project is partly financed by CPS, and partly by Virenze-Riagg. I work three days a week as a researchers, and two days a week as an therapist at Virenze- Riagg Maastricht.
My research is about intervention in trans diagnostic anger. in other words, anger problems which manifest clinically because of different forms of psychopathology, such as personality disorders, mood disorders and anxiety disorders. More specifically I investigate the clinical effects of cognitive interpretation bias modification and cognitive therapy. I also investigate how we can understand trans diagnostic anger better and how we can predict aggression as a result from anger.
- Hannah Kunst
I am a second-year Research Masters student at Maastricht University, with Psychopathology as specialization. As a student assistant for Jill Lobbestael, I am mainly concerned with working with already-existing data files from studies conducted in the past. This includes conducting literature research and preprocessing of data as well as new data analyses. Currently, I am working on studies that mainly involve research on sadism, psychopathy and aggression.
- Alberto Jover
I am studying the psychopathology track of the Research Master at Maastricht University. My work as an assistant for Jill is ample and dynamic. We mainly work together on a project that relates psychopathy traits with sadistic behaviours, but I also conduct literature research and other type of inquiries, proof-check already written articles, try to help with the analysis, etc. My research interests are many, some of them are personality disorders, schema modes, psychopathology conceptualization and network psychopathology.
- Vanessa Freund
After having previously finished my Bachelor in Psychology at the London Metropolitan University, I am currently enrolled in the Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at the Maastricht University with the specialisation Psychopathology. Since gaining experience during internships in forensic and neuropsychological settings I have developed a strong interest in Personality Disorders. At the present, Jill has taken me on for my Research Elective, in addition to Research Assistanceship work, which mainly include research on the correlation between Psychopathy and Sadism. For this, I am mostly conducting literature researches, collecting data, and proof-reading related materials.

- René Cané Molinari
René Cané Molinari, psychologist and psychotherapist. I work as a clinician at a PsyQ International in The Hague where we treat all kinds of psychopathology in international population. Together with Dr. Lobbestael we have written a chapter on personality disorders and crime and another on personality and trauma. Furthermore, we are examining the association between executive functions (particularly inhibition deficits) and aggressive behaviour on forensic population. It is our common interest to examine variables relevant for clinical development in order to hopefully improve the interventions we use with patients frequently in need of deep changes at the level of cognitions, emotions and behaviours.
- Herman Veerbeek
Herman is a psychologist, CBT therapist and EMDR practitioner in forensic psychiatric outpatient centre ''De Waag''. His specialization lies in complex trauma, treatment of violence and revenge urges, and crime-related trauma in perpetrators. Furthermore, he is working on his PhD research: ''The efficacy of the EMDR Anger, Resentment and Revenge protocol and validation of the Directed Anger Inventory''. In this PhD project, he is supervised by Jill Lobbestael (Co-promotor) and Prof. Dr. Miranda Olff (University of Amsterdam & Arq Psychotrauma Expert Group, promotor).
