Project-related professional experience

Dr. Mogoase is a young researcher in Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy at BBU. Her doctoral thesis concerned cognitive biases in emotional and psychosomatic disorders, with a special focus on modifying cognitive bias through training. Dr. Mogoase is currently involved in two ongoing projects that directly relate to the current proposal: one examines an improved intervention protocol for depression (PN-II-ID PCE: Darwinian Psychotherapy: A clinical trial for an evolutionary-driven type of intervention for depression), and the other one focuses on integrating cognitive bias modification strategies in online cognitive-behavioral intervention protocols for anxiety (PN-II-PT-PCCA Grant: Effectiveness of an empirically based web platform for anxiety in youths, iDare).
