About me

Research

  • Tatja Hirvikoski has long-term research and clinical experience of assessment
    and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders in adults. She has been working
    with development and dissemination of stepped care model for adults with
    ADHD. A core idea of the model is to combine pharmacological and
    non-pharmacological treatment methods to meet each individual’s needs and
    to optimize effective and feasible care pathways. Tatja Hirvikoski and her
    group has developed the PEGASUS psychoeducational groups for adults with ADHD
    and their significant others, designed as a first psychological treatment to
    be combined with pharmacological treatment after established ADHD diagnosis
    at adult age. She has also studied structured skills training groups for
    adults with ADHD in an outpatient psychiatric clinic and in the context of
    compulsory care due to severe substance use disorder. Further research topics
    of interest are stress and long-term outcome in adults with ADHD.
    During recent years Tatja Hirvikoski has broaden her research interest to
    include autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and currently study long-term
    outcome as well as interventions for people with ASC and their significant
    others.
