Richard Vuijk

Former PhD Student

I am clinical psychologist at Sarr Autism Rotterdam, part of Parnassia Psychiatric Institute, the Netherlands. My focus is treating mental health problems in adults with autism spectrum disorder diagnoses. My research and publications address the assessment, personality and treatment of individuals with autism spectrum disorders diagnoses. For PhD projects I am under supervision of prof. dr. H.M. Geurts and prof. dr. A.R. Arntz, University of Amsterdam. I am active in the training of psychologists and psychiatrists to diagnose and treat autism and personality pathology in adults. In 2014 (second edition 2016) I developed the NIDA (Nederlands Interview ten behoeve van Autismespectrumstoornis bij volwassenen – Netherlands Interview for Diagnostic assessment of Autism spectrum disorder in adults).
