Personal profile


I am a research-practitioner with a background in clinical and educational psychology. My research centers around the well-being of individuals in the context of school or work. I focus especially on how demands and resources interact to shape an individual's life situation. 

Together with Dr. Jonas Bjärehed, I currently lead a longitudinal study following newly graduated psychology students during their first four years as professional psychologists. The results will be used to guide and advance the education of psychologists. 



Developed scales

Compassion Fatigue Inventory: 

The Compassion Fatigue Inventory (CFI) was developed by my group in 2020. The CFI may be freely used for research purposes. It is currently under translation to several languages. Please contact me if you are intreseted in using this scale.

Currently, I teach both introductory (The Psychology Profession) and advanded level (Educational Psychology) courses in the clinical psychology program. I also supervise students writing their Masters thesis. Central to my teaching goal is the personal growth of each individual student.
