Saskia Mitreuter //


Saskia received a BA in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Mannheim, Germany, where her thesis focused upon aggressive responses to the experience of social rejection. In June 2015, she graduated cum laude from the highly selective research Master’s programme Behavioural and Social Sciences: Clinical Psychology at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, where her thesis examined how a biogenetic versus psychosocial understanding of mental illness affects mental health stigma. 


Her areas of expertise are the psychology of social rejection and exclusion, emotion regulation, and identity development as well as quantitative statistical analyses. Saskia is a great supporter of mixed-method approaches, as she considers their use crucial for an optimal gain of knowledge and a conscientious and reflective scientific practice.
