I am Jedidjah Schaaij, a psychology PhD candidate. After my 'positive psychology and technology master' at the UT I wanted to do more research with a societal impact. Thus, my PhD-journey began. In the upcoming years I will be setting up a database of negotiated incidents undertaken by the Dutch police service and examine crisis negotiations. This project is in cooperation with police negotiation practitioners, the Police Academy and the UK police (Lou Provart Msc).
