My name is Andrea Ruissen, I am psychiatrist, ethicist and philosopher, and coach/supervisor. I wrote my PhD-thesis on decisional competence in obsessive compulsive disorder. In that time I got involved in research on moral competences of psychiatrists in issues concerning physician assisted suicide and euthanasia in psychiatry. I have a special interest in diagnostics and classification in mental health care and the (expert) role and position of the psychiatrist as medical leader or playing captain. 

I provide education for psychiatrists in training, general practioners, students and mental health care professionals in both Dutch and English. I also facilitatie moral case deliberation. Please contact me for more details at
