Docent in Occupational Therapy 

The research I do is based on the concepts of activity and participation.

I am working on the development and application of the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO). A number of assessment instruments and intervention methods have been and are continuing to be developed. The field primarily has a psychosocial focus. The work is being conducted with colleagues in the department of Occupational Therapy, with international research groups primarily from the USA and the UK, and practising occupational therapists in Sweden.

I also work with ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health). Among other things, I have tested a fifth assessment factor and conducted and reviewed several mappings of Swedish occupational therapy assessment instruments to ICF. I also take part in discussions about the development of ICHI (International Classification of Health Intervention).

Lectures on and supervision within MOHO and ICF are in demand, and are conducted within the framework of county council, municipal and state activities.
