About me

    the availability of effective, evidence-based psychological treatments.


  • 1. Internet CBT for obsessive compulsive disorder in youth
    Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem in childhood and youth. Unfortunately, the recommended first-line treatment, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), is not broadly available. To bridge this gap, we develop and evaluate internet CBT (ICBT), as an accessible and resource-effective solution to reach more children and adolescents in need for effective treatment.

    2. Routine outcome measures (ROM) in mental healthcare
    Routine outcome measures (ROM) are the practice of regularly using questionnaires with clients to track their progress and therapeutic work. ROMs can be used for regular clinical follow-up, involvement of patients in their own care, development of clinical processes and benchmarking with existing research.

    3. Climate psychology and sustainable behavior change
    Representative surveys show that the majority of us are worried about climate change and its current and projected consequences. The aim of this research area is to better understand psychological reactions to climate change as well as to study facilitators of sustainable behavior change.
