Q&A Clinical Psychology [Universiteit van Amsterdam]


  • On this page we discuss questions students have with the 2022/2023 course "Clinical Psychology" at the University of Amsterdam
  • You have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have and I will try and answer them
  • On 21/4/2023 you can ask questions!
  • I will be online during that day and will try to answer all your questions as soon as possible!
  • If for some reason I need some more time to prepare an answer, I will make sure to answer in the couple of days following the questions, so you still have plenty of time to prepare for the exam afterwards
  • Please be nice :). I have put in a lot of effort in this


  • You can ask your questions, read other's and view the answers in the comment section on this page, below
  • I am looking forward to your questions!


Questions and answers are in the comment section below! ↓


You might ask: why should I trust JesperN with my questions? I will give some bullet points as to why it might be useful:

  • I have made the same exam you are going to make and have passed the course with a 8.5.
  • I have experience in Clinical Practice.
  • I have a Master's Degree in Clinical (Developmental) Psychology at the University of Amsterdam 
  • I work as a psychologist in a school setting, meaning I am actively applying all the knowledge from the course in the field.


  • When you want to optimally prepare for your exam, it can be very useful to ask questions about the literature.
  • Formulating these questions, reading the answers to your own questions and the questions that others posed make your learning process more active which, in turn, enhances your ability to remember the material.
  • It is thus super useful to ask as many questions as you might have, not just for yourself, but also for others!

Question about disorders and treatments list

Hi Jesper,

It's so cool that you have organized this Q&A! Because I do have a question for the exam of this course.

You have made a complete list of disorders and treatments talked about in the book Abnormal Psychology, but I was wondering if you know how well I should know all these disorders with their symtpoms, prevalence etc. and the treatments for the different categories of disorders? Is it a large part in the exam?

I would like to hear from you!

Kind regards,


Difference PTSD and ASD

I couldn't really tell the difference between PTSD and ASD from the slides. Could you explain it to me?

Thank you!

Reply to Floortje

Hi Floortje!

Thanks for your question! It is important to have an understanding of the symptoms and the prevalence, but do know that you shouldn't simply learn the symptoms by heart. Understand why it is part of a disorder, rather than memorize the symptoms!
