About Petra Boström

Biography

Since 2005 I have been working with research and lecturing at the Department of Psychology. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Gothenburg. I did my undergradutate studies at the Queen’s University of Belfast as well as a few years of studies at the University of Gothenburg in Conflict Management and Social Anthropology.

Teaching

I teach and supervise mainly in qualitative methods and developmental psychology.

Research interests

Children with intellectual disability are seldom included in large-scale surveys of mental health. Together with Malin Broberg and Jakob Åsberg I am working on developing new methods to assess mental health in children in special education classes (särskola). I am particularly interested in the interactions between mental health, peer-relations, family context and school climate. Another focus of my research is on parenthood and the special circumstances of parenting a child with an intellectual disability.  

Current research

Presently I am working on developing new methods to assess mental health in children in special education classes and to assess the state of mental health in pupils aged 12-15.
