The research can broadly be divided in three areas: The first area concerns tinnitus and hearing disorders. There is an ongoing collaboration (including funding) with researchers in Denmark (Oticon Research Center) and with the Linneaus Centre Head and LiU. This research mainly deals with rehabilitation and hearing screening via the Internet. Gerhard Andersson is active as part-time clinician at the hearing clinic in Linköping University Hospital.
The second area is psychiatry with studies on depression, anxiety and other psychiatric disorders. A longstanding collaboration exist with researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University, Vrjie University Amsterdam, University College London, Bergen University and several other researchers across the world. Our research group with Andersson as principal investigator take part in a EU-project (E-Compared). Another project deals with work-related stress (Forte), and another treatment of older adults with anxiety and depression.
The third area is less extensive and is about the psychology of religion and atheism. Several other areas within clinical psychology are also focused such as interpersonal violence.
