I hold a PhD degree in social work and in my thesis I investigated associations between family-, school- and individual related social stressors and adolescents’ psychosomatic problems.
I am currently involved in three research projects.
Evaluation of "Stopp! Min kropp" (Respect my body!)
In collaboration with Save the Children and the World Childhood Foundation, the material "Stopp! Min kropp!" and a gamified digital version including the same themes is evaluated.
Hand in hand we stand
The overall aim of this project is to develop and implement a school- based intervention focused on interprofessional collaboration aimed at promoting mental health and preventing mental health problems in children and adolescents.
Evalutation of govermental subsidy for regional suicide prevention in Värmland.
The project is ongoing between 2022 and 2004 and is financed by the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
I teach at the training program for social workers at Karlstad University.
I have a master's degree with a major in psychology. Subsequently, I worked as an investigator at FoU Welfare Värmland, Karlstad University. Currently I am working at KaU as a senior lecturer in social work.
