Faglige interesser

Mine faglige interesser ligger i skjæringspunktet mellom arbeid- og organisasjonspsykologi og klinisk psykologi; det som i Norge betegnes som klinisk arbeidspsykologi og arbeidshelsepsykologi.

Jeg er involvert i ulike forskningsprosjekter som bruker kvantitativ og kvalitativ forskningsdesign, for å finne årsaker og effekter av sykenærvær blant pasienter / ansatte med milde og moderate psykiske lidelser.

I den forbindelse er kliniske forhold som symptomer, arbeidsevne og diagnoser av interesse, men også psykososialt arbeidsmiljø, nærværspress, ledelse og tilrettelegging på arbeidsplassen er viktige forskningsområder. Individuelle forskjeller i motivasjon, mestringsstil, tro på egne evner og personlighet blir også undersøkt.
