Psychotherapy research; prosess- and outcome research

Short-term psychodynamic therapy and psychotherapy integration

Mindfulness in clinical work, with focus on the prevention of recurrent depression (mindfulness based cognitive therapy, MBCT)

Sensorimotor psychotherapy, with focus on treatment of complex trauma

Self-compassion

Relation, prosess and alliance in psychotherapy: Undervisningen skal gi en innføring i det begreps- og forskningsmessige grunnlag for vurdering av relasjonelle faktorer som har betydning for utfall i psykoterapi. Temaet omfatter forelesninger og praktisk ferdighetstrening om terapeutiske intervensjoner som kan fremme den terapeutiske alliansen. Det vil bli lagt vekt på sentrale forhold ved den terapeutiske relasjonen som identifisering av kjennetegn på god kontakt og allianse mellom terapeut og pasient, empatisk validering og håndtering av alliansebrudd.

Dynamisk psykoterapi: Undervisningen gir en oversikt over hovedlinjene i utviklingen fra klassisk psykoanalyse og frem til moderne psykodynamisk psykoterapi med teoretiske hovedbegreper og prinsipper for psykodynamisk arbeidsmetodikk.

Terapi integrasjon: Undervisningen gir en innføring i det integrative perspektivet innenfor psykoterapifeltet. Kurset vil også gi en praktisk innføring i hvordan tekniske og teoretiske elementer fra flere terapimodeller kan integreres i arbeid med utgangspunkt i et transdiagnostisk klinisk temaområde

I tillegg har jeg en interesse for å arbeide fram vurderingsformer som omfatter testing av ferdigheter i tillegg til kunnskap. Et ønske er å utarbeide oppgaver som gir for å vurdere studentene som i større grad enn nåværende eksamensoppgaver gir studentene mulighet til å vise sine evner til å anvende den kunnskap de har tilegenet seg.
