About Karin Grip


Licensed psychologist and licensed psychotherapist. I got my degrees from Umeå University in 1999 and Gothenburg University in 2007. 


I have been teaching among several of the educations given at the department in Gothenburg, as well as at the department of psychology in Umea in developmental psychology, attachment theory and application, developmental psychopathology and basic neuropsychology and psychological assessment. 

Research interests

My research focuses is on child exposure to intimate partner violence (IPV) and mothers survivors of IPV. A special interest of mine is attachment theory and assessment of attachment. 

Current research

At the moment I take part in a feasibility study concerning evidence-based support and treatment methods for children exposed to IPV. The methods we are studying are the Kids Club, Project Support, Child Parent Psychotherapy and Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
