My name is Nora, I’m working as a project leader for a project aimed at developing an educational program in clinical psychology at the Centre for Psychotherapy Research and Education at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience (CNS), Karolinska Institutet.

Previously, I had been working as a clinical psychologist for many years in a child and adolescent psychiatry clinic. I have worked as a research coordinator and been a PhD student for the last four years. In March of this year I defended my thesis and received my doctoral degree. My thesis was focused on the adaptation and evaluation of a manual based social skills training program for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. The objective of the study was to investigate the genotype and behavioral effects of social skills group training for children and adolescents with high-functioning autism.

I’m interested in PBL and educational programs for psychotherapists and clinical psychologists as well as in research on treatment outcomes focusing on children and adolescents. I’m not familiar with online- and opened networked learning, but I hope that this opportunity to attend the course online will enhance my skills regarding digital tools.  I look forward to learning from and working with you.
