Postdoctoral studies

My research focuses on internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ICBT) for children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and depression.

About me

I am a clinical psychologist, researcher and director at BUP Internet psychiatry unit (BUP Internetbehandling) at the child and adolescent mental health services (BUP) in Stockholm.

Research description

After defending my thesis on the development and evaluation of ICBT for children with anxiety disorders, I have continued this line of research, focusing on further evaluation of ICBT for children and adolescents. Currently, my main projects are an effectiveness trial of ICBT in a rural area of Sweden, and studies on ICBT for adolescent depression. I am also involved in projects evaluating the effect and cost-effectivenvess of ICBT for other age groups and disorders.
