Laura Kunst completed her Research Master’s in Clinical and Health Psychology at Leiden University and subsequently worked there as a teacher and researcher. Presently Laura is working on her PHD at Tilburg University. Her main research interests lie in treatment strategies for anxiety disorders. As a PHD project, Laura is investigating the comparative (cost-)effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy and autonomy enhancing treatment for anxiety disorders, in a multi-center randomized controlled trial. She recently won the Dutch Association of Psychologists’ national publication prize for young authors for an article on this topic. Besides anxiety disorders Laura is interested in addictive and mood disorders. In her research she focuses on underlying processes associated with these disorders, in order to advance understanding of their higher prevalence in men or women and their etiology.
