Institute presentation

The Centre for Contextual Psychiatry (CCP) is a research centre that mainly studies the interaction between the person and the context in the development of psychopathology in general and psychosis in specific. This is investigated along four research lines:

  • methodological and statistical advances in experience sampling research
  • phenomenology of psychosis
  • mechanisms
  • clinical applications and the development of ecological momentary interventions

CCP is a multidisciplinary centre, currently hosting more than 25 researchers (clinical and theoretical psychology, psychiatry, philosophy, statistics, IT, physiology). The aim of the centre is to develop a strong research line in psychiatry, while keeping a close connection to the patients, family, and clinicians. We are, therefore, firmly embedded in the department of Neuroscience at KU Leuven as well as in the university’s psychiatric centre. CCP was established with support from FWO (Odysseus grant to Prof. Inez Myin-Germeys and Clinical Fellowship to Prof. Ruud van Winkel).
