Courses taught by Dr. Blechert cover topics like clinical psychology, psychotherapy, health psychology , psychophysiology, affective neuroscience and research methodology.
Dr. Blechert tries to give students first hand experiences with some of the methods. In one of these regular courses, on clinical disorders and behavior therapy, students exposed themselves to feared animals, such as insects, spiders and snakes. Such experiences allowed them to integrate theoretical knowledge about exposure therapy with their own affective experiences.
