Natalia Cecon-Stabel


Profile

Natalia Cecon-Stabel studied Applied Psychology (B.Sc.) and Psychology (M.Sc.) in Cologne and Bonn from 2012-2018. In her master’s thesis, she used mediation analyses to examine possible influences on the well-being of single mothers in the context of their occupation and the compatibility of family and work. In doing so, she set a salutogenetic focus.

She has been working at the Institute for Medical Sociology, Health Services Research and Rehabilitation Science (IMVR) since 2013. Initially, she supported the implementation and evaluation of the patient survey in the NRW breast centres and colorectal cancer centres in the Care Research Lab Cologne (CRLC). Since 2018, she has been involved in the external evaluation of the isPO (integrated cross-sectoral psychooncology) project. The newly developed form of care isPO is evaluated prospectively, formatively and summatively with regard to its quality of care and effectiveness using quantitative and qualitative methods.

In addition to evaluation and implementation research, her research interests include salutogenesis in psycho-oncological care as well as communication and relationship building between care providers and (cancer) patients. She is currently working on her PhD, titled “Sense of Coherence in Psycho-oncology”.

In addition to her scientific work at the IMVR, she also works in a psychotherapeutic practice. She has experience in diagnostic work with children and has been working as a psychotherapist for adults since 2018. Through her practical experience, she contributes impulses from practice into her scientific work.
