About Me

Hanneke Kip works as an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Health and Technology at the University of Twente, and as a researcher at Transfore, an organization for forensic mental healthcare. Her research is driven by the need to improve mental healthcare for vulnerable and hard-to-reach populations such as forensic psychiatric patients. In order to achieve this, she aims to investigate how different types of technology, such as interactive virtual reality, mobile apps, wearables and web-based interventions, can add something new and unique to treatment of underserved patient populations. To answer these complex questions, she conducts interdisciplinary research in which she combines theories and models from - amongst other things - psychology, human-centred design and implementation science. In line with this, Hanneke’s PhD project (2021, cum laude) was focused on the participatory development, implementation and evaluation of technology to better identify and treat risk factors in forensic mental healthcare. The main conclusion of her thesis was that - if developed and implemented well - technology has the potential to drastically improve mental healthcare by shifting the focus from mostly ‘talking and thinking’ in a treatment room to ‘doing and experiencing’ in realistic contexts. Her current work is focused on further exploring this assumption by means of innovative yet feasible research methods.

Projects

PhD Project

From July 2016 up until August 2020 I worked on my PhD project, which I defended in March 2021 (cum laude). This project was focused on the development, implementation and evaluation of eHealth in forensic mental healthcare, in collaboration with Stichting Transfore and Erasmus MC. My supervisors were dr. Saskia Kelders, dr. Yvonne Bouman and prof. dr. Lisette van Gemert-Pijnen. In my thesis, I addressed four research lines: (1) the possibilities of technology for forensic mental healthcare; (2) the participatory development of virtual reality for identification and treatment of acute-dynamic risk factors; (3) the implementation of web-based interventions in outpatient care; and (4) the evaluation of a self-control training app. Besides my PhD, I also worked as a teacher in the Psychology and Health Sciences programmes for one day a week. Furthermore, I was the coordinator and editor of the book ‘eHealth Technology: Theory, Development and Evaluation’ and a massive open online course on eHealth.
