Lectures and seminars NASP Journal seminars - Reducing suicidal intrusions in depressed patients through an Eye Movement Dual Task (EMDT) in a multicentre randomized clinical trial – effective and safe
Welcome to participate in the NASP Journal seminars together with Jaël van Bentum, Junior Asisstant Professor at Utrecht Univeristy and PhD student at VU University Amsterdam.
Jaël van Bentum is currently a PhD student at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, as well as an assistant professor at the University of Utrech in The Netherlands.
“Reducing suicidal intrusions in depressed patients through an Eye Movement Dual Task (EMDT) in a multicentre randomized clinical trial – effective and safe“
Suicidal patients may experience suicidal intrusions (i.e., intrusive, uncontrollable, suicide-related mental imagery). In this presentation I will discuss the definition and characteristics of these suicidal intrusions. Furthermore, I will describe the results of a multicentre randomized clinical trial in which we evaluated the safety and efficacy of a brief Eye Movement Dual Task (EMDT) add-on intervention to treatment as usual (TAU) in reducing the severity and frequency of intrusive mental images and suicidal ideation.

What are NASP:s Journal Seminars?
Two times every semester, NASP will organize a journal seminar, during which researchers can present their scientific work in the area of suicide and mental health research.
With these seminar series, we aim to offer learning as well as networking opportunities to learn, network and discuss research with anyone who is interesting in the topic of suicide, both within and outside of Karolinska Institutet. We encourage interactive seminars and will always leave time for participants to discuss various questions related to the topic. Besides this, we want to increase the visibility of impactful research and the researchers behind it, and to introduce NASP alongside this.
Regarding PhD-students, credits can be obtain for attending these seminars (as long as the topic is relevant for your research).
