Research group: Clinical Psychology, Prevention and Intervention from a Lifespan Perspective (CPPI)
A common denominator for the research conducted by the CPPI is a focus on living conditions, prevention and intervention aimed at promoting mental health in children, youth and adults. For instance, we investigate parent-child interaction as well as interaction between clients and professionals.
The majority of or research projects are carried out in cooperation with partners within child psychiatry, adult psychiatry, schools, maternal and child health care. The research involves participants such as children, youth, parents, clients and professionals.
Benefits of clinical research
There is a great need to explore the effectiveness of different interventions and treatments which are currently being used in health care. For example, treatment methods that have been developed and used in other countries need to be translated and evaluated in a Swedish context. Knowledge is also important in order to be able to develop new treatment methods or adapt already existing methods.
The impact of the research
Our research aims to improve living conditions and mental health in children, adolescents and adults. A large part of the findings is communicated and integrated in the work of to authorities and health care, but we also attach great importance to disseminating knowledge to the public by participating in conversation in the community.
