    Research interests

    Research interests are related to the development of clinical psychological science and practice-oriented themes.

    Scientific works cover a wide range of activities within depression research, mental health in children and adolescents, perinatal mental health, psychological trauma, medically unexplained symptoms, prevention, low-threshold services, coping groups, and psychotherapy. I work with both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

    Main interests are a) depression and cognitive vulnerability, b) mental health in children and adolescents, c) clinical infant and toddler psychology, d) perinatal mental health, e) psychological trauma, f) psychosomatic conditions/medically unexplained physical symptoms, g) clinical health psychology, h) treatment research, prevention, and early intervention, i) visual methods in research and treatment, j) learning and coping groups, k) user participation and collaboration, and l) public dissemination of research-based knowledge.
