Personal profile

Research interests

Josephine is a trained and registered Psychologist from Auckland, New Zealand, currently completing her PhD within the Psychiatry Department of Amsterdam UMC location VUMC. She is part of the research program Care and Support in Dementia, led by Professor Dr. Rose-Marie Dröes, and is an early-stage researcher with the DISTINCT Network, funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks, under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 program.

Josephine's background is in Health Psychology, and she is interested in finding ways to improve the lives of people with long-term chronic health problems through the use of psychological interventions such as Acceptance and Committment Therapy, Mindfullness, and CBT. 

Josephine's current project- Known in the Nursing Home- focuses on improving person-centered care for residents with dementia in the nursing home and their carers. Through the use of technology, this project aims to let the residents feel more known as a person in the nursing home, by facilitating meaningful communication and social interaction with their carers.
