Academic Interests

I have focused on surveys of and primary prevention of adolescents’ alcohol and drug abuse with a focus on social psychological mediating factors (attitudes, social influence via injunctive and descriptive norms, self-efficacy expectations, coping, alcohol- and other outcome expectancies, intentions etc.). I am also interested in other health related behaviors (psysical activity, HIV/AIDS prevention etc.) as long as it is related to primary prevention, adolescents and possible mediating (and moderating) mechanisms. I am interested in evaluation of normal-population campaigns targeting health related behaviors (spec. alcohol and drugs) and the development of such campaigns. At the time being I work with analyzes of adolescents’ alcohol use from age 13 till 30 in a longitudinal two-generation survey, with focus on possible mediators/moderators (VITT-data, HEMIL, Univ. of Bergen) . Further I am involved with a longitudinal survey to evaluate “Unge & Rus” in all Oslo-schools together with RBUP, Univ. of Tromsø.
