Om mig

Jag är docent i klinisk psykologi vid Karolinska Institutet. Min forskning kretsar kring utveckling, utvärdering och implementering av e-hälsointerventioner för problematiskt alkohol- och drogbruk, problemspelande och ohälsosamma levnadsvanor. Sedan augusti 2015 är jag enhetschef för Stödlinjen för problemspelare (stodlinjen.se). Under 2018 lanserade jag, i samarbete med nationella experter, en svenskspråkig webbutbildning om problemspelande som riktar sig till personal inom kommuner samt hälso- och sjukvården, som möter personer med spelproblem. Jag har utvecklat frågeformulären DUDIT, DUDIT-E och Alcohol-E, screeninginstrument som används i hela Sverige samt i många andra länder, och som finns tillgängliga för allmänheten på självtestsajten eScreen.se. Jag är huvudförfattare till böckerna AUDIT och DUDIT- identifiera problem med alkohol och droger (Gothia, 2012, ny upplaga 2017), DUDIT-E och Alcohol-E: Samtala konstruktivt om droger och alkohol (Gothia, 2011), samt huvudredaktör för boken Kriminalvård i praktiken (Studentlitteratur, 2010). I 10 år var jag verksam som psykolog och psykoterapeut på Beroendecentrum Stockholm och är idag verksam som adjungerad lektor och forskargruppsledare vid Institutionen för klinisk neurovetenskap, Karolinska Institutet, samt vid Centrum för psykiatriforskning, Karolinska Institutet och Stockholms läns landsting. Jag blev omvald 2017 som ordförande i Svensk beteendemedicinsk förening efter tidigare ordförandeskap 2009-2015 och är ansvarig lärare för en MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), KIBEHMEDx, om beteendemedicin som ges gratis på edX plattformen sedan hösten 2014. Sedan 2010 är jag styrelsemedlem i International Society of Behavioral Medicine, som Education & Training Chair.
