Research interest

My research concerns digital psychological methods, clinical research in primary health care and person-centered care.

Current research

In my dissertation work, I investigate how person-centered care and the third pillar in evidence-based care: the patient’s individual situation, experiences, and preferences, can be endorsed in internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy (ICBT) for patients with anxiety disorders in primary health care. In the thesis, I focus on patient influence and how to involve patients in the treatment, for example through impact on treatment decisions, peer-support and the fostering of own values.
