Om Mia Söderberg

2008 Fully registered Swedish psychologist (Legitimerad psykolog),

Full-time researcher in the research group “Epidemiology and Insurance medicine” at the Department of occupational and environmental medicine, School of public health and community medicine, Sahlgrenska academy & University of Gothenburg.

My research mainly focuses on psychosocial work conditions and health, currently in the national SCAPIS-project and the working life without heart disease programme, in which the role of intermediary risk factors and socioeconomy are examined in relation to psychosocial job stressors and cardiovascular heart disease.

I'm also the principal investigator in a FORTE funded project about occupational hazards, living conditions and risks of covid-19 in foreign-born workers in low status jobs.

Other research projects:

Work conditions and continued work in older ages, and prerequisites depending on socioeconomics, occupational sector or gender in the Swedish AgeCap centre and the European WorkLong project.

Methods of evaluating cumulative psychosocial exposures and relationships to slow progressing diseases.

Interpretation of psychosocial work factors via cognitive attributions and effects for job mobility or return to work. Cognitive patterns, such as rumination or perfectionism, and effect leisure time recovery.
