Teaching

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). Since many years back I am also one of the course leaders for the introductory course for the training program for psychologists.

Research interests

I am a Professor of Psychology at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. 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 29 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. The above mentioned projects have been supported financially trough several research grants from the Swedish Reseach Council for Helath, Working Life and Welfare (FAS/FORTE).
