Background and activities

My training, research, and policy interests focus on relational welfare, citizenship, democracy, governance, public value, and social justice. Especially I am interested in recovery in mental health and substance use and citizenship, public value, dignity, and the common good. This involves topics such as health equity, co-construction, co-production and co-creation, social inclusion, asset- and contextual-based perspectives, nurturing communities and environments, democracy and governance, family therapy and relational therapies. I am also focusing on the theories of science, research methods and the use of participatory action research methodologies.

I am Adjunct Professor of Mental Healthcare at the University South-Eastern Norway and Senior Advisor at the National Competence Centre for Mental Health Care (Napha).
