Siw Tone Innstrand
Background and activities
I am professor in Occupational health psychology at the Department of Psychology and Director of Center for Health Promotion Research. I have a PhD from NTNU on the interaction between work and family.
I give lectures and teach in various fields such as occupational health, work environment, health promotion, intervention research and quantitative method.
I have initiated and developed, ARK, which is a comprehensive implementation program to promote psychosocial work environment in academia. Currently over 19 universities and university colleges in Norway (N>30.000), and two in Sweden, is using ARK regularly in their systematic health, work and safety effort.
In 2016/2017 and in 2021/2022 I was awarded Fulbright Scholarship to work one year at Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces, UC Berkeley.
Currently I am the WP leader in the EU project "H-work - Multilevel Interventions to Promote Mental Health in SMEs and Public Workplaces". Together with 14 partners from nine different countries, we will develop and test interventions, measuring instruments, tools and models to promote mental health in Europe.
