Sylvie Blairy

Sylvie Blairy is professor of clinical psychology at the University of Liège.  She is interested in the heterogeneity of the symptomatic manifestations of depression and the psychological processes that are responsible for the development and maintenance of this disorder. She is a psychotherapist and studies the effects of the use of behavioural activation treatment interventions (activity recording, activity planning, goal-oriented activities, work on important life domains and values) on depressive symptomatology, as well as on the cognitive processes (e.g., mental rumination, interpretation bias, attention bias) and behavioural (e.g., experiential avoidance) that maintain the depressive disorder.
