Psychotherapy & Movement is an Amsterdam-based practice that provides specialised care as part of the Dutch Association of Mental Health and Addiction Care, the GGZ. Psychotherapy & Movement supports clients with mental health problems and disorders. We promote psychological health through diagnosis and treatment, scientific research and by spreading knowledge. Psychotherapy & Movement investigates and treats a very wide group of people (6 – 100 years of age). Psychotherapy & Movement specialises in particular in treating personality disorders and complex PTSD (trauma).
Psychotherapy & Movement keeps abreast of all research and knowledge in their field. All our therapists/psychotherapists are university-educated behavioural scientists and medical practitioners, who also have a wide range of subspecialisations including Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy®, EMDR, Imaginal Exposure and Schema Therapy. This means that we specialise in treating complex post-traumatic stress disorder and personality disorders.
P&M is a certified member of the LVVP (Dutch Association of Independent Psychologists and Psychotherapists). P&M is LVVP inspected, in other words the practice meets the LVVP quality criteria, in which all the necessary laws and regulations pertaining to independent GGZ practices are laid down. We are also a member of the VEN (Dutch EMDR Association).
P&M and Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM)
Psychotherapy & Movement uses ROM as part of its treatment protocols. Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM) is used in therapeutic treatments to measure the effectiveness of the treatment given. ROM has five core functions: treatment, coaching, learning, accountability and research. The effectiveness of treatment is measured based on the severity of the problems (course of symptoms), daily functioning and the client’s quality of life. A ROM method comprises a measuring instrument, agreements made with the client regarding the method and extent of the measurements to be made, and a measurement outcome. In practice, ROM is carried out by means of one or more questionnaires, filled in at minimum at the beginning and end of treatment, and periodically in the event of long-term care. On the basis of these measurements, the therapist can then adjust the treatment in the interim.
