Staff member at Division of Psychology, Pedagogy and Sociology.

Conducts research in social sciences, psychology.


Research area/research interest

My research focuses on child development, fatherhood and the linkages between gender, family and work in post-industrialized societies. I am currently overseeing the following projects: The Gothenburg Longitudinal Developmental Study (GoLD), a 30-year prospective longitudinal study of Swedish participants and their families who we have followed from age one until recently when they were 34 years old (together with Michael E. Lamb & Ann Frisén); The Impact of the Workplace on Men's Involvement with Children. Since 1993, we have performed a series of studies investigating the dynamic linkages between gender equity, work-family balance and organizational change (together with Linda Haas). A final project concerns: Postnatal depression, anxiety, and stress in fathers: The overall aim of this project is to learn more about depression, anxiety and stress in fathers and how these symptoms can be identified during the postnatal period.

Most of these projects are funded by FAS/FORTE.

Teaching/supervision

My teaching focuses on the following areas: (1) developmental psychology (for instance the socio-emotional development of children and adolescence, parenthood, with special emphasis on fatherhood, identity development in adolescence and early adulthood); (2) organizational culture and gender equity (for instance how family policy affects equality between men and women, the importance of the workplace for fathers taking parental leave). I also supervise Master and PhD-thesis's.

Keyword

Developmental psychology, children, adolescents and young adults, parenthood, fathers, child and youth studies, organisational culture, postpartum depression, longitudinal studies.
