Brussels University Consultation Center
The Brussels University Consultation Center (BRUCC) research group has the central aim to conduct high-quality and relevant applied clinical research within mental healthcare. With our research group we aim to build bridges between VUB researchers and applied clinical partners (e.g. UZ Brussels, Brugmann hospital, CGG’s, CAW’s).
Research within BRUCC is centered around three key topics:
- The development, translation and norming of psychological assessment instruments
- The identification of community-level at-risk profiles for diverse mental health problems
- The development and evaluation of innovative psychological and psychotherapeutic interventions
Within BRUCC, research is conducted from an interdisciplinary and multi-method approach, integrating clinical-biological, experimental, qualitative and questionnaire methodologies.
