Research Infrastructure

Matrix and the SkyRa Platforms of the International Institute for the Advanced Studies of Psychotherapy and Applied Mental Health

Description The International Institute for the Advanced Studies of Psychotherapy and Applied Mental Health is an Institute of the Babes-Bolyai University (BBU: http://www.ubbcluj.ro), Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and of the Albert Ellis Institute (AEI: http://albertellis.org), New York, USA, an academic spin-off of the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy (http://www.clinicalpsychology.ro) of the BBU. The Institute is focused on (1) fundamental/basic/exploratory research (e.g., the mechanisms involved in mental disorders and mental health – in the clinical cognitive neuroscience paradigm); (2) translational research (e.g., using the developments of clinical cognitive sciences for developing new psychological treatments); and (3) applied research/development (e.g., focused on testing and disseminating new evidence-based psychological treatments). A main strength of the Institute is the combination of clinical psychology and technology (e.g., robotics, virtual reality therapy). The Institute has two major world-class integrated research infrastructures/platforms (see for details http://www.psychotherapy.ro) that allow the Institute (and other research teams all over the world) to run top research projects in the clinical cognitive neurosciences field: (1) the Platform for Robotherapy and Virtual Reality Therapy (the Matrix Platform: http://www.psytech.ro) and (2) the Platform for Advanced Imaging – MRI/EEG – in Clinical Cognitive Sciences (the SkyRa Platform: http://www.clinicalpsychology.ro/skyra/). The Institute’s research platforms were constructed based on national funds (our international grants also contributed to their developments) and they are used by research teams all over the world (e.g., Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, USA), independently and/or in collaboration with our research team. Clear procedures regarding the access and ethical guidelines are accessible on the platform’s websites. The Institute and its platforms are parts of larger international Networks (see at www.psychotherapy.ro): (1) ISIC Excellence Network; (2) rNetwork.
