Benjamin Claréus

Doctoral student, Ph.D.

Personal profile


I conduct qualitative and quantitative research within the domains of mental health and well-being. Special topics of interest include self-injury (especially ceasing to self-injure), health among sexual and gender minorities, and the psychology of body modification and embellishment practises within the Western cultural sphere. Previously, I have conducted research on how individuals living with long-term pain are affected by their relationships with healthcare professionals and the Swedish social insurance system.


I teach qualitative and quantitative methodology at the basic and advanced level, including philosophical and practical perspectives. If you study on the master’s or clinical psychologist programme and  interested in writing your thesis within my areas of expertise, send me an email.
