Clara Hellners forskargrupp

Vår forskargrupp studerar självskadebeteende, suicid och aggression bland ungdomar och vuxna, vilket i teorin– åtminstone delvis – härstammar ur svårigheter med känsloreglering. Vi studerar dessa beteenden och dess underliggande mekanismer ur ett epidemiologiskt perspektiv och med hjälp av interventionsstudier. Detta med det övergripande målet att förhindra negativa utfall som psykiatriska diagnoser, våld och suicid.

Nedan listar vi våra pågående projekt. Mer information om varje projekt finns att läsa på engelska här:

Forskningsprogram I: Epidemiologiska studier
