I am trained as a medical anthropologist and have done field research in Denmark and the United Kingdom, investigating the orientation towards recovery within psychiatry, voice hearing, self-help groups, peer-support, and the relation between institution and user movement. I am particularly concerned with the patient perspective. I use qualitative methods, such as participant observation and interviewing.


Main research areas

Dual diagnosis; The orientation towards recovery within psychiatry; Voice hearing; Self-help groups; Peer-support; The relation between institution and user movement 


Current research

I currently work on two projects:

1. A study of the relationship between dual diagnosis and mechanical restraint

2. A study of protective and risk factors for dual diagnosis during the life course as well as for the prognosis of dual diagnosis patients
