    Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) for older adults with anxiety and depression2016Inngår i: Guided internet-based treatments in psychiatry / [ed] Lindefors, N. & Andersson, G., Cham: Springer International Publishing , 2016, s. 219-234Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Anxiety and depression are prevalent among older adults and are associated increased disability, reduced quality of life and poorer physical health. Effective psychological treatments such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) are known to be effective and acceptable for older adults. However, as with younger adults, research indicates relatively few older adults access these treatments in their traditional face-to-face format. However, highlighting the potential of newer internet-delivered CBT (ICBT) approaches for increasing access to treatment, a large proportion of older adults are online and the overall proportion online is only likely to grow over time. Several clinical trials have now been conducted examining ICBT for older adults and the nature and finding of these emerging studies are reviewed in this chapter. Future directions for research focused in this area are also discussed.

    Attracting and Retaining Science Students2010Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This research addresses an issue raised in recent reports that demonstrate that Quebec andSweden lag behind countries with emerging economies in the number of science graduates, asmeasured by the proportion of degrees earned in the sciences. Our objective was to investigate aset of factors that might, directly and/or indirectly, impact on student achievement andperseverance in science studies. We aimed to assess cultural (Quebec vs. Sweden) and genderdifferences in students’ scores on these factors, and in the strength of the relationships that thesefactors have to achievement and perseverance. Participants (N=2184) were recruited from twopopulations: students who enrolled in one of the four public Anglophone CEGEPs in Montrealthe Fall 2007 and Swedish students who attended twelfth grade in high schools in Linköping andStockholm in the school year 2007-2008. With the consent of students, demographic,achievement and enrollment data were acquired from the databases of the Quebec and Swedishministries of education. Data on independent variables: parental support (for autonomy,competence and science acculturation); teacher support (for autonomy, competence, relatednessand science acculturation); and, cognitive style (systemizing and empathizing) were collected viasurveys. Similarly, data on mediating variables: self-efficacy; five sub-scales of motivation; and,academic emotions (boredom, anxiety and enjoyment) were also collected via surveys. Data onperseverance were exclusively collected via survey in the Swedish sample. We used both surveysand information provided by college registrars to assess perseverance of Quebecers.Confirmatory Factor Analysis was used to validate instruments used in this study. ANOVA andCORRELATION were statistics used to assess differences and strengths of relationships betweenvariables. We have found that Swedish students persevere more than their Quebec counterparts.Furthermore, female students persevere less than their male peers although their achievement isnot significantly different and the achievement was found to be the most important factor inperseverance. We have also found several promising factors that might be at the root of thegender differences in perseverance, namely, female students have: higher negative emotions(anxiety and boredom); lower self-efficacy; and lower systemizing cognitive style. All of thesevariables were shown to influence perseverance. We determined that parental support for scienceacculturation is very low. Thus, teacher support for science acculturation, which influencesstudent intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy, which in turn influence perseverance, is animportant part of teachers’ classroom role. Increasing teacher support for science acculturationmay impact positively on students with lower systemizing cognitive style, encouraging them topersevere in the pursuit of a career in the sciences.

    Volatility Estimates Increase Choice Switching and Relate to Prefrontal Activity in Schizophrenia2020Inngår i: Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging, ISSN 2451-9022, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 173-183Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Reward-based decision making is impaired in patients with schizophrenia (PSZ), as reflected by increased choice switching. The underlying cognitive and motivational processes as well as associated neural signatures remain unknown. Reinforcement learning and hierarchical Bayesian learning account for choice switching in different ways. We hypothesized that enhanced choice switching, as seen in PSZ during reward-based decision making, relates to higher-order beliefs about environmental volatility, and we examined the associated neural activity. METHODS: In total, 46 medicated PSZ and 43 healthy control subjects performed a reward-based decision-making task requiring flexible responses to changing action-outcome contingencies during functional magnetic resonance imaging. Detailed computational modeling of choice data was performed, including reinforcement learning and the hierarchical Gaussian filter. Trajectories of learning from computational modeling informed the analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging data. RESULTS: A 3-level hierarchical Gaussian filter accounted best for the observed choice data. This model revealed a heightened initial belief about environmental volatility and a stronger influence of volatility on lower-level learning of action-outcome contingencies in PSZ as compared with healthy control subjects. This was replicated in an independent sample of nonmedicated PSZ. Beliefs about environmental volatility were reflected by higher activity in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of PSZ as compared with healthy control subjects. CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that PSZ inferred the environment as overly volatile, which may explain increased choice switching. In PSZ, activity in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex was more strongly related to beliefs about environmental volatility. Our computational phenotyping approach may provide useful information to dissect clinical heterogeneity and could improve prediction of outcome.

    Alkohol & föräldrastress: -Finns det något samband?2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    I ett flertal undersökningar har individer skattat att de dricker i följd till stress, vilket har visats bero på att människor dricker i försök till att hantera ekonomisk stress, stress på jobbet och/eller föräldrastress (Pohorecky, 1991). Ju svårare stressen är desto högre är alkoholkonsumtionen (Pohorecky, 1991). I denna studie studeras alkohol och föräldrastress genom självskattningsenkäter tagna ur projektet Alla Barn i Sydöstra Sverige (ABIS) 8-årsuppföljning.

    Resultatet visar på att det inte finns några signifikanta skillnader i föräldrastressen hos alkoholkonsumtionens olika riskgrupper varken hos mödrarna eller fäderna, då de själva skattat sin alkoholkonsumtion. Detta resultat visar på att man inte med säkerhet kan säga att mängden alkohol som konsumeras hos föräldrar tenderar att bero på att deras föräldraskapskrav inte räcker till för deras personliga resurser. Resultatet kunde inte heller säkert visa tendenser till att alkoholen skulle kunna reducera föräldrastressen hos föräldrarna.

    Child and Adolescent Trauma Screen (CATS): En psykometrisk studie i svensk normgrupp2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande studie var att psykometriskt undersöka den svenska versionen av Child and Adolescent Trauma Screen (CATS) för att skapa tillgång till ett självsvarsinstrument för barn och ungdomar som screenar för både traumahistorik och traumasymtom utifrån aktuellt diagnossystem DSM-5. För detta syfte undersöktes reliabilitet och evidens för validitet med hjälp av två sample; en normgrupp med 591 svenska skolelever i åldrarna 10 till 17 år samt en test-retestgrupp med 90 svenska skolelever i åldrarna 13 till 17 år. En pilotstudie med 38 svenska skolelever i åldrarna 15 till 19 år användes för metodvägledning inför studiens genomförande.

     

    Reliabiliteten undersöktes med estimering av intern konsistens med Cronbachs α i normgrupp samt temporal stabilitet med ICC och Cohens k i test-retestgrupp. För att erhålla evidens för kriterievaliditet användes robust enkel regressionsanalys för att undersöka huruvida antalet traumahändelser kunde predicera symtomutfall.  För att erhålla evidens för konvergent och diskriminant validitet beräknades Pearsons r mellan CATS symtomskala och de sex subskalorna i Trauma Symtom Checklist for Children (TSCC). Cramérs V användes för evidensprövning av konvergent validitet mellan CATS skala för traumahistorik och LYLES.  Evidens för validitet undersöktes även med analys av formulärets interna struktur med konfirmatorisk faktoranalys (CFA) utifrån DSM-5s fyrfaktormodell för PTSD. CFA utfördes med estimeringsmetoden bootstrap Maximum-likelihood till följd av bristfällig uni- och multivariat normalitet. Oberoende t-test användes för att undersöka eventuella gruppskillnader avseende traumahistorik och traumasymtom uppmätt med CATS.

     

    CATS symtomskala uppvisade god intern konsistens på samtliga fyra subskalor (Cronbachs α = .73-.89) och moderat temporal stabilitet (ICC = .57-.68). Temporal stabilitet för CATS totalskala för traumahistorik var god (ICC = .84) och sett till varje item var överensstämmelsen mellan test- och retestmätningar varierande från liten till nästintill perfekt (k = .34-.87). Robust enkel regressionsanalys påvisade att antalet traumahändelser predicerar symtomutfall där 32% av variansen i symtomuttryck kunde härledas till antalet traumahändelser. Måttliga till starka korrelationer återfanns mellan CATS symtomskala och TSCC symtomskalor med starkast korrelation med subskalan posttraumatisk stress (r = .82) och svagast korrelation med subskalan för sexuella bekymmer (r = .44). CATS skala för traumahistorik korrelerade måttligt med LYLES (V = .45).  DSM-5s fyrfaktormodell för PTSD indikerade god passform, reliabilitet och konvergent validitet. Modellen uppvisade bristande intern diskriminant validitet vilket kunde förklaras med prövning av en second-ordermodell med PTSD som högre ordnad faktor.

    Viewpoints of pedestrians with and without cognitive impairment on shared zones and zebra crossings2018Inngår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 13, nr 9, artikkel-id e0203765Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Shared zones are characterised by an absence of traditional markers that segregate the road and footpath. Negotiation of a shared zone relies on an individuals ability to perceive, assess and respond to environmental cues. This ability may be impacted by impairments in cognitive processing, which may lead to individuals experiencing increased anxiety when negotiating a shared zone. Method Q method was used in order to identify and explore the viewpoints of pedestrians, with and without cognitive impairments as they pertain to shared zones. Results Two viewpoints were revealed. Viewpoint one was defined by "confident users" while viewpoint two was defined by users who "know what [they] are doing but drivers might not". Discussion Overall, participants in the study would not avoid shared zones. Pedestrians with intellectual disability were, however, not well represented by either viewpoint, suggesting that shared zones may pose a potential barrier to participation for this group.

    Grupphandledning och utvecklandet av terapeutisk relation: En kvalitativ studie om psykoterapeutstuderandes upplevelser2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Psykoterapihandledning i grupp är en viktig del i utbildningen till psykoterapeut. Det finns dock inte mycket forskning om detta och framför allt inte om hur den terapeutiska relationen påverkas av grupphandledningen. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka grupphandledningens upplevda påverkan på den terapeutiska relationen utifrån de handledda terapeutstudenternas perspektiv. Metoden som har använts i studien är en kvalitativ ansats utifrån Grundad Teori. Resultatet visar att handledarens stil har stor betydelse för upplevelsen av grupphandledningen. Den har inflytande på trygghet i gruppen, kreativitet, lärande, konflikthantering och kritiskt tänkande. Allt detta upplevs återspegla sig i den terapeutiska relationen som terapeuten etablerar med sin klient. Man kan se detta som ett indicium för betydelsen av utbildningshandledningen för den blivande terapeutens kapacitet att etablera och vidmakthålla en god terapeutisk allians med sina klienter.

    Is the Grass Greener in the Other Group? Students’ Experiences of Group-Work2006Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Group-work is used as one type of working method in higher education in Sweden today. Working with others in a group project may have many advantages and may also facilitate learning. But group-work has never been able to work its magic for everyone. Some students find group-based working methods as a high-quality and enjoyable way to learn whereas other find working in group as a waste of time, or even pointless. Sometimes group-members may think and speak about other groups, the processes and the work of the other groups. Students may compare their own group to other groups in their course. As teachers we receive spontaneous comments about how students experience the group-work. Through course evaluations we also have the opportunity to receive annotations about how students consider group-work as working method. Even though a large number of studies have been presented on group-work very little attention has been paid to the students’ experience of the working method. Do students appreciate group projects or do they find it boring and even as a waste of time? Would some students rather prefer to work alone, or in “the other group”?

    The aim of this paper presentation is to address students’ experiences of group-work as a working method in higher education. We want to focus on and elucidate the students’ point of view and how they assess working in groups.

    Data was collected via structured questionnaire with multiple choice and open ended questions. The questionnaire was distributed to students on different study programmes.

    This study is part of a lager research project on group-work at higher education and we will present some of the results from the questionnaire. In the presentation we will focus on students’ positive and negative experiences of group-work. We will also focus on their conceptions of how their own group works compared to other groups in their study program.

    A Randomized Trial of Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Major Depressive Disorder: Predictors of process and outcome2016Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are both evidence-based treatments for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). Several head-to-head comparisons between these methods have been made, most of them in the US. There is a need for more trials in different treatment settings. This thesis is based on a randomized controlled trial of CBT and IPT for MDD in a community-based psychiatric outpatient clinic. In the trial, treatment outcome and mentalization change was compared between the methods. In addition, the significance of pre-treatment mentalization for subsequent alliance and outcome was analyzed. Ninety-six patients, about half of them with personality disorders, were randomized to 14 sessions of CBT or IPT. The hypothesis was that IPT would not be inferior to CBT which was confirmed. CBT had a significantly higher drop-out rate. Initial capacity for mentalization predicted alliance and outcome in both IPT and CBT. The level of mentalization was changed in IPT but not in CBT

    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Although considerable attention has been paid to the concept of mentalization in psychotherapy, there is little research on mentalization as predictor of psychotherapy process and outcome. Using data from a randomized controlled trial of cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal psychotherapy for depression, we studied mentalization in 85 outpatients with major depressive disorder (MDD) according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It was hypothesized that patients showing lower capacity for mentalization would experience poorer quality of alliance and worse outcome. Method: Depressive symptoms were measured each session using the Beck Depression Inventory-II. Mentalization was measured as reflective functioning (RF) on a slightly shortened version of the Adult Attachment Interview. A measure of depression-specific reflective functioning (DSRF), measuring mentalization about depressive symptoms, was also used. The Working Alliance Inventory-Short Form Revised was completed after each session by both therapist and patient. Longitudinal multilevel modeling was used to analyze data. Results: The patients had on average very low RF (M = 2.62, SD = 1.22). Lower pretreatment RF/DSRF predicted significantly lower therapist-rated working alliance during treatment. RF did not affect patient-rated alliance, but lower DSRF predicted lower patient-rated alliance across treatment. Patients with higher RF/DSRF had better outcomes on self-rated depression. Conclusions: The findings showed lower than normal capacity for mentalization in patients with MDD. Lower RF/DSRF predicted worse treatment outcome. More research is needed to understand how RF affects psychotherapy response and how RF is affected after recovery from depression.

    Visual word expertise: a study of inversion and the word-length effect, with perceptual transforms2014Inngår i: Perception, ISSN 0301-0066, E-ISSN 1468-4233, Vol. 43, nr 5, s. 438-450Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The word-length effect may indicate whether reading is proceeding in an efficient whole-word fashion or by serial letter processing. If it is an index of an orientation-dependent expert reading mechanism, then it should show an inversion effect, with a large difference between upright and upside-down text that is specific for normally configured text. We measured response time of healthy subjects reading 3- to 9-letter words presented in normal configuration, in mirror reflection or spelt backward, in either upright or inverted orientation. The word-length effect showed an inversion effect specific for normal text, as it was not seen for either backward or mirrored text, a result that differed from that for simple mean response times. Also, the word-length effect was smaller for backward than for mirrored text, suggesting that reading of transformed text uses primarily local letters rather than global word forms. We conclude that the word-length effect is a suitable index of expert reading, and reveals that reading under perceptually difficult conditions relies on a sublexical letter-based strategy.

    Namibian Student's Time Perspective: Investigating TP Comparing ZTPI Scores and Conducting Focus Groups2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines cultural differences in time perspective (TP). Two groups of psychology students were compared using the Swedish Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (S-ZTPI). One group was Swedish (n=125) and the other was Namibian (n=105). Students from Namibia also participated in focus groups discussing aspects affecting their TP. Results show Swedish students are more past positive, less past negative, less present hedonistic, less present fatalistic and less future negative compared to Namibian students. Focus groups findings reveal that economic aspects are important to the Namibian students view of the past and the future. They believe it is not possible to have a positive past or future if basic needs, like food and shelter, are not met. Other important aspects include family and freedom. The students also discuss the importance of finding a balance between appreciating the present and investing in the future.

    Predictors and moderators of internet- and group-based cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder2013Inngår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 8, nr 11, s. e79024-Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) can be equally effective as traditional face-to-face cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for treating panic disorder (PD). However, little is known about the predictors and moderators of outcome of ICBT when delivered in psychiatric outpatient settings. This study investigated a selection of outcome predictors and moderators of ICBT for panic disorder based on data from a randomised controlled trial where therapist-guided ICBT was compared with group CBT (GCBT) for panic disorder. Participants (N = 104) received 10 weeks of ICBT or GCBT and were assessed before and after treatment, and after six months. Multiple regression analyses were used to test for significant predictors of treatment outcome. Predictors of positive treatment response for both modalities were having low levels of symptom severity and work impairment. In addition, anxiety sensitivity was found to have a small negative relationship with treatment outcome, suggesting that anxiety sensitivity may slightly enhance treatment response. Treatment modality had a moderating effect on the relationship between domestic impairment and outcome and on the relationship between initial age of onset of panic symptoms and treatment outcome, favouring ICBT for patients having had an early onset of PD symptoms and for patients having a high domestic functional impairment. These results suggest that both ICBT and GCBT are effective treatment modalities for PD and that it is possible to predict a significant proportion of the long-term outcome variance based on clinical variables.

    Predicting speech-in-noise perception using the trail making task: Results from a large-scale internet study2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the utility of an internet-based version of the trail making test (TMT) to predict performance on a speech-in-noise perception task. Computerised versions of the tests were completed, via the internet, by a large (1500+) sample of listeners aged between 18 and 91 years old, both with and without hearing loss. The results show that better performance on both the simple and complex versions of the TMT are associated with better speech-in-noise recognition scores. The findings suggest that the relation between performance in the TMT and speech recognition test may be due to the capacity of the TMT to index perceptual speed, as opposed to the more complex cognitive abilities also implicated in TMT performance.

    Being "Good in Bed"Body Concerns, Self-Perceptions, and Gender Expectations Among Swedish Heterosexual Female and Male Senior High-School Students2017Inngår i: Journal of sex & marital therapy, ISSN 0092-623X, E-ISSN 1521-0715, Vol. 43, nr 4, s. 326-342Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigated gender differences regarding body perceptions, self-perceptions, values and expectations in sexual situations, and factors associated with expectations, among Swedish heterosexual female and male high-school students. A total of 2,765 students (aged 18 to 22) completed questionnaires. Women reported lower satisfaction with themselves and their body appearance (p amp;lt; 0.001), and felt more inferior to their partner (p amp;lt; 0.001). Men felt more superior to their partner, and felt higher expectations (p amp;lt; 0.001). Male sex, difficulty saying no to sex, dissatisfaction with the body, feeling inferior or superior to partner, and considering partners satisfaction as more important, were all associated with feeling expectations during sex.

    Mobbning betraktas som moraliskt fel – ändå sker det: Hur olika mekanismer inom moraliskt disengagemang sammanhänger med mobbning2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens första syfte var att bidra med en analys av huruvida mekanismer inom moraliskt disengagemang sammanhänger med olika mobbningsformer (mobbning, direkt mobbning och indirekt mobbning) bland elever på högstadienivå (årskurs 7) när de inkluderas i samma modeller. Ett andra syfte med studien var att undersöka om det förelåg könsskillnader i hur relationerna såg ut mellan mobbningsformerna och de olika mekanismerna inom moraliskt disengagemang. Studien hade en tvärsnittsdesign och resultatet baserades på 1726 elevers självskattningar av påståenden om olika mobbningsformer och mekanismer inom moraliskt disengagemang. Multipla regressionsanalyser visade att mobbning sammanhängde positivt med moraliskt rättfärdigande, förskönande omskrivning, ansvarsförskjutning, dehumanisering och skylla på offret. Resultatet visade även att moraliskt rättfärdigande, förskönande omskrivning och dehumanisering sammanhängde positivt med mobbning och direkt mobbning hos både tjejer och killar. Indirekt mobbning sammanhängde positivt med moraliskt rättfärdigande, förskönande omskrivning, dehumanisering och skylla på offret hos tjejer, men endast med moraliskt rättfärdigande och dehumanisering hos killar. Resultatet indikerade att tjejer använde fler, och i större utsträckning, mekanismer inom moraliskt disengagemang vid mobbningssituationer än killar.

    Multi-family therapy in anorexia nervosa-A qualitative study of parental experiences.2016Inngår i: Eating Disorders, ISSN 1064-0266, E-ISSN 1532-530X, Vol. 24, nr 2, s. 186-197Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study from northern Sweden investigated experiences of multi-family therapy (MFT) in 12 parents of children with anorexia nervosa (AN). The main reported benefit was the opportunity to talk to others in a similar situation, thereby sharing experiences and struggles. MFT resulted in new perspectives and insights that improved family dynamics and enabled new constructive behaviors. In conclusion, MFT seems to be a useful therapeutic modality in the treatment of AN in a northern European setting.

    Bland platta paddor och smarta äpplen: Förskolebarns kognitiva förmåga i relation till digital media2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien undersökte relationen mellan förskolebarns kognitiva förmåga och vilken typ av rörligmedia och mobila spel som barnen ägnade sig åt, samt relationen mellan föräldrarnas användningav mobila enheter och barnens kognitiva förmåga. Kognitiv förmåga undersöktes medtestbatteriet WPPSI-IV och medievariablerna undersöktes med en webbaserad enkät.

    Sammantaget visade resultaten att det fanns positiva samband mellan pojkars kognitiva förmågoroch att titta på viss typ av rörlig media, medan det för flickor fanns negativa sambandför viss rörlig media respektive spelande på mobila enheter. Gällande förälderns användningav mobila enheter hade flickorna bättre generell kognitiv förmåga och språklig förmåga omföräldern använde sådana i närvaro av barnet.

    Resultaten gick delvis mot och delvis i linje med tidigare forskning. Eftersom studien fannolika resultat för flickor och pojkar, bör detta undersökas mer noggrant i kommande studierför att bättre kunna uttala sig om relationen mellan digital media och barns kognitiva förmåga.

    Procedural priming of a numerical cognitive illusion2016Inngår i: Judgment and decision making, ISSN 1930-2975, E-ISSN 1930-2975, Vol. 11, nr 3, s. 205-212Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A strategy activated in one task may be transferred to subsequent tasks and prevent activation of other strategies that would otherwise come to mind, a mechanism referred to as procedural priming. In a novel application of procedural priming we show that it can make or break cognitive illusions. Our test case is the 1/k illusion, which is based on the same unwarranted mathematical shortcut as the MPG illusion and the time-saving bias. The task is to estimate distances between values of fractions on the form 1/k. Most people given this task intuitively base their estimates on the distances between the denominators (i.e., the reciprocals of the fractions), which may yield very poor estimations of the true distances between the fractions. As expected, the tendency to fall for this illusion is related to cognitive style (Study 1). In order to apply procedural priming we constructed versions of the task in which the illusion is weak, in the sense that most people do not fall for it anymore. We then gave participants both "strong illusion" and "weak illusion" versions of the task (Studies 2 and 3). Participants who first did the task in the weak illusion version would often persist with the correct strategy even in the strong illusion version, thus breaking the otherwise strong illusion in the latter task. Conversely, participants who took the strong illusion version first would then often fall for the illusion even in the weak illusion version, thus strengthening the otherwise weak illusion in the latter task.

    Konformitet på Internet: Hur vi påverkas av andra2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersökte det gruppsykologiska fenomenet konformitet på Internet. Deltagare var 941 personer från tio olika communities och forum. Av deltagarna var 58,9% kvinnor och åldern varierade mellan 12 och 88 år med en medelålder på drygt 30 år. Konformitet undersöktes genom en webbenkät där deltagarna utifrån födelsemånad fördelades på en konformitets- och en kontrollgrupp. Enkätfrågorna rörde allmänbildning, logisk förmåga samt attityder. Till skillnad från kontrollgruppen fick konformitetsgruppen ta del av diagram med fabricerade siffror över andras svar. Resultaten visade att konformitet förekom d = 0.57,p < .001. Av deltagarna konformerade 52,8% på minst en kritisk fråga. I genomsnitt konformerade cirka 14-15% av deltagarna per kritisk fråga. Konformiteten ökade när uppgiften var svår samt den fabricerade majoriteten var stor. Ingen könsskillnad fanns i graden av uppvisad konformitet. Resultaten stämmer i stort bra överens med tidigare konformitetsforskning. Slutsatsen är att människor även på Internet i hög grad påverkas av andras åsikter och konformerar till majoriteten. Detta innebär att Internet inte befriar människor från gruppsykologiska fenomen. Denna studie är extra viktig då det inte finns så mycket forskning om konformitet på Internet, särskilt inte i Sverige. Vidare forskning krävs för att närmare undersöka exakt vilka mekanismer som ligger bakom konformiteten på Internet.

    Choice-justifications after allocating resources in helping dilemmas2017Inngår i: Judgment and decision making, ISSN 1930-2975, E-ISSN 1930-2975, Vol. 12, nr 1, s. 60-80Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    How do donors reason and justify their choices when faced with dilemmas in a charitable context? In two studies, Swedish students were confronted with helping dilemmas based on the identifiable victim effect, the proportion dominance effect and the ingroup effect. Each dilemma consisted of two comparable charity projects and participants were asked to choose one project over the other. They were then asked to provide justifications of their choice by stating the relative importance of different types of reasons. When faced with an identified victim dilemma, participants did not choose the project including an identified victim more often than the project framed statistically, but those who did emphasized emotional reasons (e.g., "Because I had more empathic feelings"), but not any other reasons, more than those choosing the statistical project. When faced with a Proportion dominance dilemma, participants more often chose the project with a high rescue proportion (e.g., you can save 100% out of 30) than the project with a low rescue proportion (e.g., you can save 4% out of 800), and those who did emphasized efficacy reasons (e.g., "Because my money can make a greater difference there"), but no other reasons, more than those favoring the low recue proportion project. Finally, when faced with an Ingroup dilemma, participants more often chose the project that could help ingroup-victims over the project that could help outgroup victims, and those who did emphasized responsibility reasons (e.g., "Because I have a greater obligation"), but no other reasons, more than those favoring outgroup projects. These results are consistent with and extend previous findings about how different helping effects are related to different psychological processes.

    Emotional reactions, perceived impact and perceived responsibility mediate the identifiable victim effect, proportion dominance effect and in-group effect respectively2015Inngår i: Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, ISSN 0749-5978, E-ISSN 1095-9920, Vol. 127, s. 1-14Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigated possible mediators of the identifiable victim effect (IVE), the proportion dominance effect (PDE), and the in-group effect (IGE) in helping situations. In Studies 1–3, participants rated their emotional reactions (distress and sympathy toward the victims), perceived impact of helping, perceived responsibility to help, and helping motivation toward four versions of a helping situation. Gradually increasing victim identifiability in the helping situations primarily affected emotional reactions and sympathy completely mediated the IVE. Gradually making the reference-group smaller primarily affected perceived impact, and impact completely mediated the PDE. Gradually increasing in-groupness primarily affected perceived responsibility, and responsibility completely mediated the IGE. Study 4 included real monetary allocations and largely replicated the results using a between-subject design. Together, the results shed light on how contextual factors trigger help motivation, and indicate that different helping effects are primarily mediated by different mechanisms.

    Perceived Utility (not Sympathy) Mediates the Proportion Dominance Effect in Helping Decisions2014Inngår i: Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, ISSN 0894-3257, E-ISSN 1099-0771, Vol. 27, nr 1, s. 37-47Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The proportion dominance effect (PDE) refers to a higher motivation to help when the victims are part of a small (you can help 56 out of 60) rather than a large (you can help 56 out of 560) reference group. In two studies using different experimental paradigms, we investigated possible mediators of the PDE. Study 1 (N = 168) was conducted in three separate steps in order to test each link of the mediator model independently. Students read six vignettes where it was possible to help a fixed number of victims but where the size of the reference group was either small or large. When the reference group was small, helping motivation and perceived utility were higher, whereas sympathy toward the victims and perceived rights were not. A within‐subject mediation analysis showed that perceived utility mediated the PDE. Study 2 (N = 36) presented four versions of a single helping situation in a joint evaluation mode where the size of the reference group became gradually smaller in each version. All participants compared and responded to each version. Helping motivation increased as the reference group became smaller, and this effect was mediated by perceived utility rather than by distress, sympathy, or perceived responsibilities. Our results suggest that unlike, for example, the identifiability and singularity effects, which have been suggested to be mediated by emotional reactions, the PDE is mediated by perceived utility.

    Anticipated Guilt for Not Helping and Anticipated Warm Glow for Helping Are Differently Impacted by Personal Responsibility to Help2016Inngår i: Frontiers in Psychology, ISSN 1664-1078, E-ISSN 1664-1078, Vol. 7, nr 1475Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    One important motivation for people behaving prosocially is that they want to avoid negative and obtain positive emotions. In the prosocial behavior literature however, the motivations to avoid negative emotions (e.g., guilt) and to approach positive emotions (e.g., warm glow) are rarely separated, and sometimes even aggregated into a single mood-management construct. The aim of this study was to investigate whether anticipated guilt if not helping and anticipated warm glow if helping are influenced similarly or differently when varying situational factors related to personal responsibility to help. Helping scenarios were created and pilot tests established that each helping scenario could be formulated both in a high-responsibility version and in a low-responsibility version. In Study 1 participants read high-responsibility and low-responsibility helping scenarios, and rated either their anticipated guilt if not helping or their anticipated warm glow if helping (i.e., separate evaluation). Study 2 was similar but here participants rated both their anticipated guilt if not helping and their anticipated warm glow if helping (i.e., joint evaluation). Anticipated guilt was clearly higher in the high-responsibility versions, but anticipated warm glow was unaffected (in Studies 1a and 1b), or even higher in the low-responsibility versions (Study 2). In Studies 3 (where anticipated guilt and warm glow were evaluated separately) and 4 (where they were evaluated jointly), personal responsibility to help was manipulated within-subjects. Anticipated guilt was again constantly higher in the high-responsibility versions but for many types of responsibility-manipulations, anticipated warm glow was higher in the low-responsibility versions. The results suggest that we anticipate guilt if not fulfilling our responsibility but that we anticipate warm glow primarily when doing over and beyond our responsibility. We argue that future studies investigating motivations for helping should measure both anticipated negative consequences for oneself if not helping, and anticipated positive consequences for oneself if helping.

    The rise and fall of scary numbers: The effect of perceived trends on future estimates, severity ratings, and help-allocations in a cancer context2018Inngår i: Journal of Applied Social Psychology, ISSN 0021-9029, E-ISSN 1559-1816, Vol. 48, nr 11, s. 618-633Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Statistical information such as death risk estimates is frequently used for illustrating the magnitude of a problem. Such mortality statistics are however easier to evaluate if presented next to an earlier estimate, as the two data points together will illustrate an upward or downward change. How are people influenced by such changes? In seven experiments, participants read mortality statistics (e.g., number of yearly deaths or expert-estimated death risks) made at two points of time about various cancer types. Each cancer type was manipulated to have either a downward trajectory (e.g., the estimated death risk was 37% in 2012, and was adjusted downward to 22% in 2014), an upward trajectory (e.g., 7% -amp;gt; 22%), or a flat trajectory (e.g., 22% -amp;gt; 22%). For each cancer type, participants estimated future mortality statistics and rated the perceived severity. They also allocated real money between projects aimed at preventing the different cancer types. Participants responses indicated that they thought that a trend made out of two data points would continue in the future. People also perceived cancer types with similar present mortality statistics as more severe and allocated more money to them when they had an upward trajectory compared to a flat or downward trajectory. Although there are boundary conditions, we conclude that peoples severity ratings and helping behavior can be influenced by trend information even when such information is based on only two data points.

    Bullshit-sensitivity predicts prosocial behavior2018Inngår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 13, nr 7, artikkel-id e0201474Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Bullshit-sensitivity is the ability to distinguish pseudo-profound bullshit sentences (e.g. “Your movement transforms universal observations”) from genuinely profound sentences (e.g. “The person who never made a mistake never tried something new”). Although bullshit-sensitivity has been linked to other individual difference measures, it has not yet been shown to predict any actual behavior. We therefore conducted a survey study with over a thousand participants from a general sample of the Swedish population and assessed participants’ bullshit-receptivity (i.e. their perceived meaningfulness of seven bullshit sentences) and profoundness-receptivity (i.e. their perceived meaningfulness of seven genuinely profound sentences), and used these variables to predict two types of prosocial behavior (self-reported donations and a decision to volunteer for charity). Despite bullshit-receptivity and profoundness-receptivity being positively correlated with each other, logistic regression analyses showed that profoundness-receptivity had a positive association whereas bullshit-receptivity had a negative association with both types of prosocial behavior. These relations held up for the most part when controlling for potentially intermediating factors such as cognitive ability, time spent completing the survey, sex, age, level of education, and religiosity. The results suggest that people who are better at distinguishing the pseudo-profound from the actually profound are more prosocial.

    This article tries to clarify whether negative charity appeals (i.e., advertisements emphasizing the bad consequences of not helping) or positive charity appeals (i.e., advertisements emphasizing the good consequences of helping) are more effective. Previous literature does not provide a single answer to this question and we suggest that one contributing reason for this is that different studies have operationalized appeal effectiveness in different ways (e.g., actual behavior, self-rated helping intentions, or expressed attitudes about the ad or the organization). Results from four separate studies suggest that positive appeals are more effective in inducing favorable attitudes toward the ad and toward the organization but that negative appeals are more effective (in studies 1A and 1B) or at least equally effective (in studies 1C and 1D) in eliciting actual donations. Also, although people’s attitude toward the appeal (i.e., liking) was a good predictor for the expected effectiveness in increasing donation behavior (in Study 2), it was a poor predictor of actual donation behavior in all four main studies. These results cast doubt on marketing theories suggesting that attitudes toward an advertisement and toward the brand always lead to higher purchase behavior.

    Argument-inconsistency in charity appeals: Statistical information about the scope of the problem decrease helping toward a single identified victim but not helping toward many non-identified victims in a refugee crisis context2016Inngår i: Journal of Economic Psychology, ISSN 0167-4870, E-ISSN 1872-7719, Vol. 56, s. 126-140Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is known that both the characteristics of the victims one can help and the existence of victims one cannot help influence economic helping decisions in suboptimal ways. The aim of this study was to systematically test if these two aspects interact with each other. In Studies 1 and 2, we created hypothetical charity appeals related to the Syrian refugee crisis and factorially manipulated characteristics of victims possible to help (one identified child/nine non-identified children) and presence of statistical information about the scope and nature of the problem (information-box absent/present). We found a significant interaction effect both when using self-rated helping intention (Study 1), and when using actual donation behavior as the dependent variable (Study 2). Statistical information decreased helping intentions toward a single identified child but had no, or even a small positive effect on helping nine non-identified children. In Study 3, non-student participants reading a charity appeal with both a story about one identified child and statistical information donated less often than participants reading appeals with either only a story about one identified child or only statistical information. We suggest that both emotional arguments (e.g., a story and picture of an identified child in need) and analytical arguments (e.g., detailed statistical information about the scope and nature of the problem) can make us more motivated to help refugees, but that mixing different argument-types can make charity appeals internally inconsistent and decrease donations.

    AD/HD och känslomässigt undvikande: En naturalistisk pilotstudie om effekten av ISTDP för vuxna med AD/HD2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: AD/HD innebär en funktionsnedsättning med kärnsymptom som ouppmärksamhet, hyperaktivitet och impulsivitet. Personer med AD/HD har också ofta problem med känsloreglering. Intensiv dynamisk korttidsterapi (ISTDP) syftar till att hjälpa patienter till ökad förmåga att uppleva komplexa känslor genom att medvetandegöra dem. Terapiformens utgångspunkt är att många patienters problem skapas av känslomässigt undvikande och den betonar värdet av upplevelse av känslor i terapirummet.

    Studien syftade till att undersöka effekten av ISTDP på symtomen hos patienter med AD/HD som ett komplement till sedvanlig medicinbehandling. Frågan var om behandling riktad mot känsloreglering påverkar den globala symptombilden för personer med AD/HD.

    Metod: Studien är en naturalistisk pilotstudie med sex patienter som fick 10 sessioners behandling med ISTDP. Utfallsmåtten var Inventory of Interpersonal Problems, Adult ADHD Self Report Scale, Beck Anxiety Inventory och Patient Health Questionnaire-9. Primärt utfallsmått var Adult ADHD Self Report Scale. Patientens problem mättes vid 4 tillfällen, vid första, fjärde, sjunde och sista veckan av behandlingen.

    Resultat: Patienterna förbättrades signifikant på Inventory of Interpersonal Problems och Adult ADHD Self Report Scale och på Beck Anxiety Inventory. Det fanns dock en stor variation inom gruppen. Vissa patienter förbättrades tydligt, andra förblev oförändrade och någon försämrades.

    Slutsatser: ISTDP som ett komplement till sedvanlig medicinbehandling och kan hjälpa vissa personer med AD/HD att fungera bättre interpersonellt. Det fanns också tecken på minskning av symptomen på AD/HD samt visar tendenser till reducerad ångest. Ingen följsamhetskattning till ISTDP gjordes. Detta samt det låga deltagarantalet och avsaknaden av kontrollgrupp gör att det är svårt att generalisera resultaten. De ska snarare ses som indikationer på vikten av ytterligare forskning.

    Perfektionism och self-compassion - En experimentell studie om hur perfektionism och self-compassion påverkar uppsatsskrivande och korrekturläsning i olika affektiva situationer.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna experimentella studie var att öka kunskapen om perfektionism genom att undersöka huruvida perfektionism går att påverka, hur perfektionism påverkar prestation samt hur olika perfektionismdimensioner tar sig uttryck i olika situationer. För att undersöka detta skapades ett internetexperiment innehållande en kort version av Pennebaker’s essay writing procedure (uppsatsskrivande-uppgift), en korrekturläsningsuppgift samt självskattningsformulär för olika perfektionismdimensioner och self-compassion. Deltagarna i studien randomiserades till två olika betingelsegrupper som fick skriva om en gång då de lyckats (pos. betingelsegrupp) eller en gång då de misslyckats (neg. betingelsegrupp). Resultatet visade på ett signifikant samband mellan perfektionismdimensionen perfectionist strivings och antalet ändringar i texten hos den negativa betingelsegruppen samt ett signifikant samband mellan self-compassion och antal skrivna ord i uppsatsskrivande-uppgiften före ändring i den positiva betingelsegruppen. Resultaten visade även på signifikanta korrelationsskillnader både mellan perfektionismdimensionen perfectionist strivings och antalet ändringar i texten samt mellan self-compassion och antalet skrivna ord i uppsatsskrivande-uppgiften. Resultaten tyder på att olika perfektionismdimensioner och self-compassion blir mer framträdande samt påverkar prestation på olika sätt beroende på om situationen är positiv eller negativ.

    NOVA-projektet: – effekten av ett internetbaserat självhjälpsprogramm med e-poststöd vid behandling av ångeststörningar2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande studies syfte var att undersöka behandlingseffekten av ett Internetbaserat självhjälpsprogram med e-poststöd, för personer med olika typer av ångestproblematik. Ett ytterligare syfte var att undersöka behandlingsresultaten när deltagaren själv fick förfoga över behandlingens upplägg och innehåll. Huvudkomponenten i behandlingen utgjordes av sammanlagt 16 moduler hämtade från tidigare Internetbehandlingar riktade mot social fobi, paniksyndrom, generaliserat ångestsyndrom samt depression.

    Behandlingsgruppen utgjordes av 27 individer som varit kontrollgrupp i en tidigare behandlingsstudie. För samtliga deltagare pågick behandlingen tio veckor. Beroendevariabler utgjordes av självskattningsformulären Clinical Outcome in Routine Evaluation – Outcome Measure, Beck Anxiety Inventory, Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale – Self Rated, Quality Of Life Inventory, resultat på SCID-intervjuer samt kodning av totala symtom. Beroende t-test visade att behandlingsgruppen förbättrades signifikant på samtliga beroendevariabler, vilket innebär att denna KBT-behandling har lett till minskad grad av ångest, nedstämdhet samt ökat välmående, funktion och livskvalitet för deltagarna. Genomsnittlig effektstorlek inom gruppen var Cohens d=0.88.

    Does psychotherapy for young adults in routine practice show similar results as therapy in randomized clinical trials?2010Inngår i: Psychotherapy Research, ISSN 1050-3307, E-ISSN 1468-4381, Vol. 20, nr 2, s. 181-192Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research indicates that patients treated with psychotherapy in the community do not stay in treatment long enough to achieve clinically significant change. Because the average patient seeking treatment at a community center may not be as informed and motivated for change as the average patient participating in a research trial, the authors compared outcome among all patients presenting to a mental health clinic (n=416) and a subgroup of patients who started psychotherapy at the same clinic (n=101). Outcome was assessing using the Symptom Checklist-90, Inventory of Interpersonal Problems, and Global Assessment of Functioning. Results confirmed that outcome among all patients seeking the centre was worse than in an average clinical trial. However, patients who started psychotherapy after assessment achieved results comparable to those in RCT studies.

    The Capacity for Self-Observation in Psychotherapy2012Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The phenomena of self-awareness and self-observation are thought by many to be uniquely human qualities, and questions about how they develop have engaged philosophers and spiritual thinkers throughout history. More recently these issues have come to interest psychologists, psychotherapists, and researchers of diverse clinical psychology orientations as well. This dissertation explored conceptual issues and empirical measurement methods related to self-awareness and self-observation capacities. The four studies approached this from different angles: Study I used mainly qualitative methods to study post-treatment processes related to continuing clinical improvement after termination of long-term psychotherapeutic treatments. The main finding was that self-analysis seemed to be related to continued improvement after ending of therapy, but contrary to our hypothesis there was no difference between psychotherapy and the more intensive psychoanalysis in this regard. Study II tested the measurement of mindfulness by self report in a sample of experienced Buddhist meditators. The findings confirmed relationships between mindfulness and psychological well-being, but raised doubt about the instruments’ sensitivity to change. Study III compared different methods for measuring theoretically related concepts of self-observation: mindfulness, mentalization, and affect consciousness. This study showed surprisingly little common variance between affect consciousness and mentalization/mindfulness. Finally, the results of Study IV showed that in patients diagnosed with clinical depression, mentalization about depressive symptoms predicted aspects of the initial psychotherapy process better than mentalization about attachment. Taken together, these studies show the complexity of the phenomenon of self-observation and the corresponding complexity of research on it. The relationships between variables related to self-observation, their measurements, and their relationships to the psychotherapy process seem more complex than would be expected from current theories. A model for types of self-observation in the process of change in psychotherapy is tentatively proposed.

    Abstract [en]

    Long-term follow-up studies of long-term psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy or psychoanalysis are extremely rare, and few have focused on the post-treatment process itself. In the Stockholm Outcome of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy project, one of the results was that patients in psychoanalysis continued to improve after termination to a higher degree than patients in long-term psychotherapy. In this study 20 patients selected from the project were interviewed on two occas ions, one and two years after termination, in order to explore how they described their post-treatment processes. The interviews were studied qualitatively using a multiple case study design, and categories of different types of post-treatment development were created from these case studies. Results indicate that the variation within treatment groups is large, and that development may continue in several ways after termination. The most striking difference between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy was not, as hypothesized, in the self-analytic function, but in various self-supporting strategies described by former analysands but not by former psychotherapy patients. However, only self-analysis was significantly correlated with post-termination improvement across both treatments. Three patients improving after termination and three deteriorating are described in detail as illustrations. Some methodological constraints of the design limit the generalizeability of results.

    Abstract [en]

    Self-report measures were used to study mindfulness and well-being in experienced meditators in a quasi-experimental intervention study. Seventy-six experienced meditators were studied, 48 who were participating in an intensive meditation retreat in the Vipassana (insight meditation) tradition and 28 who did not. Retreat participants had scheduled meditation practice from early morning to late at night, and were encouraged to practice mindfulness throughout the whole day. The Kentucky Inventory of Mindfulness Skills (KIMS) and the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) were used to measure mindfulness, and the General Population version of the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (GP-CORE) was used to measure well-being. Correlation analyses in the pre-intervention data showed that self-reported mindfulness was strongly related to well-being, with the exception for the observe subscale of FFMQ, Only the acceptance subscales were associated with meditation experience. Mindfulness increased after the retreat, but the increase was not significantly larger for retreat participants than for the control group. However. well-being increased more in the retreat group than the control group, and increase in mindfulness was associated with increase in well-being across both groups. Results are discussed in relation to previous research and methodological aspects.

    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Concepts of mentalization, affect consciousness, and mindfulness have been increasingly emphasized as crucial in psychotherapy of diverse orientations. Different measures have been developed that purportedly measure these concepts, but little is known about their interrelationships. We discuss conceptual overlaps and distinctions between these three concepts, and present results from a preliminary empirical study comparing their measures.

    Methods: To study the relationships between these concepts, data from a group of psychotherapy students (N = 46) was used. Mentalization operationalized as Reflective Functioning (RF) was rated on transcripts of a brief version of the Adult Attachment Interview, the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) was used to measure mindfulness, and the Affect Consciousness Interview-Self/Other version (ACI-S/O) to measure affect consciousness.

    Results: There was a small but statistically significant relationship between RF and FFMQ, but surprisingly no relationship between AC-S/O and RF or FFMQ. A post-hoc analysis showed a relationship between consciousness of others’ affects and a reduced version of the RF scale.

    Discussion: Results confirm that mentalization and mindfulness share some  common variance, but contrary to expectations affect consciousness seems to be more different from RF and mindfulness than expected. A possible explanation for the counterintuitive finding of no relationship between RF and affect consciousness is that affect consciousness measures a mature capacity for mentalized affectivity, while RF (especially at the high end) is largely a buffer against trauma and adversity. Low or absent findings for the FFMQ are explained more in terms of different methods variance.

    Åpne denne publikasjonen i ny fane eller vindu >>Patient Reflective Functioning as Predictor of Early Psychotherapy Process in the Treatment of Depression
    (engelsk)Manuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Despite considerable clinical attention to the concept of mentalization in psychotherapy, research on mentalization and the psychotherapy process is virtually absent. Using data from two ongoing randomized controlled trials of psychotherapy for depression, we studied mentalization in 45 patients diagnosed with DSM-IV Major Depressive Disorder. The initial psychotherapy process was hypothesized to be experienced as more difficult with patients showing lower capacity for mentalization because of their difficulty understanding behavior in terms of mental states.

    Methods: Mentalization was measured as Reflective Functioning (RF) on the Adult Attachment Interview, conducted before therapy start. Additionally, a measure of Depression-Specific Reflective Functioning (DSRF) measuring mentalization about depressive symptoms was tested. Psychotherapy process was measured by the Working Alliance Inventory – Short form (WAI-S) and the Feeling Checklist (FC), which were completed after each session by both therapist and patient.

    Results: Pre-treatment RF on the AAI was on average low (M = 3.1), but variation in RF did not predict any aspect of the initial (first four sessions) psychotherapy process. Higher DSRF predicted better working alliance and more positive feelings as rated by the patient. RF on the AAI did not predict any process measure significantly.

    Discussion: The low RF in depression replicates two previous studies, and may help explaining why maternal depression is a risk factor for infant developmental problems. If the results for DSRF are replicated, this measure might be used for identifying patients who are not easy candidates for psychotherapy.

    Dynamic Models of Individual Change in Psychotherapy Process Research2017Inngår i: Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, ISSN 0022-006X, E-ISSN 1939-2117, Vol. 85, nr 6, s. 537-549Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: There is a need for rigorous methods to study the mechanisms that lead to individual-level change (i.e., process-outcome research). We argue that panel data (i.e., longitudinal study of a number of individuals) methods have 3 major advantages for psychotherapy researchers: (1) enabling microanalytic study of psychotherapeutic processes in a clinically intuitive way, (2) modeling lagged associations over time to ensure direction of causality, and (3) isolating within-patient changes over time from between-patient differences, thereby protecting against confounding influences because of the effects of unobserved stable attributes of individuals. However, dynamic panel data methods present a complex set of analytical challenges. We focus on 2 particular issues: (1) how long-term trajectories in the variables of interest over the study period should be handled, and (2) how the use of a lagged dependent variable as a predictor in regression-based dynamic panel models induces endogeneity (i.e., violation of independence between predictor and model error term) that must be taken into account in order to appropriately isolate within-and between-person effects. Method: An example from a study of working alliance in psychotherapy in primary care in Sweden is used to illustrate some of these analytic decisions and their impact on parameter estimates. Results: Estimates were strongly influenced by the way linear trajectories were handled; that is, whether variables were "detrended" or not. Conclusions: The issue of when detrending should be done is discussed, and recommendations for research are provided. What is the public health significance of this article? This article provides recommendations on how to study psychotherapy processes using dynamic panel data models to strengthen causal inferences. Accurate estimates of what drives individual development in psychotherapy are needed to generate recommendations on what therapists should focus on in therapy. Using the alliance-outcome association as an example, we show that estimated effect sizes may vary greatly depending on which modeling approach is used, with the decision on whether to remove time-trends from the outcome variable making the largest difference.

    Review of organizational effects on the outcome of mental health treatments2018Inngår i: Psychotherapy Research, ISSN 1050-3307, E-ISSN 1468-4381, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 76-90Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: As there are theoretical, clinical, and "common sense" reasons to expect a relationship between organizational factors and outcome in clinics providing psychotherapy and other mental health treatments, a review of empirical research in this area was undertaken with the aim of finding empirical evidence for organizational effects. Methods: A structured search for studies on organizational differences in patient mental health outcomes was performed using EBSCO host, Cochrane Library Database, and the Health Systems Evidence database at McMasters University. Finished studies published in English were included if they presented data from more than one mental health service and used change in symptom, level of functioning, or quality of life as outcome. Results: The search yielded not more than 19 studies fulfilling inclusion criteria. All studies showed some evidence for organization effects, and there was some evidence for organizational climate and culture explaining differences in outcome. Conclusion: Given that mental health treatments are likely to be especially susceptive to organizational effects, it is remarkable that not more research has been devoted to this. Clearly, more research is needed to study the consequences of work organization for the outcome of psychotherapy. Methodological issues in organizational studies are discussed.

    The Working Alliance: From Global Outcome Prediction to Micro-Analyses of Within-Session Fluctuations2017Inngår i: Psychoanalytic inquiry, ISSN 0735-1690, E-ISSN 1940-9133, Vol. 37, nr 3, s. 167-178Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The working alliance, originally a psychoanalytic concept, is probably the most empirically studied psychotherapy process variable. There are many studies showing that a better alliance predicts better outcomes (e.g., Horvath et al., 2011), although the causal direction of this relationship is still debated (Barber et al., 2000; DeRubeis, Brotman, and Gibbons, 2005; Falkenstrom, Granstrom, and Holmqvist, 2013). Additionally, most of the empirical research on the working alliance is limited in clinical utility because of the relative simplicity of the research. Specifically, most empirical research on the working alliance has aimed to link patient-therapist dyads overall level of working alliance with global treatment outcomes. In actual clinical practice, therapists may be most interested in the fluctuations in the alliance from one session to the next, or even from one moment to the next within a session. There is a rich tradition in psychoanalysis of evaluating the results of therapeutic interventions by examining the patients responses. With the help of modern statistical methods, we believe the impact of a single intervention or series of interventions on factors such as working alliance, symptomatic improvement, or emotional experiences can be studied. Although this research is still in its infancy, we believe it is the future of scientific investigation of the talking cure.

    Working Alliance Predicts Symptomatic Improvement in Public Hospital-Delivered Psychotherapy in Nairobi, Kenya2019Inngår i: Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, ISSN 0022-006X, E-ISSN 1939-2117, Vol. 87, nr 1, s. 46-55Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: Although patient-therapist collaboration (working alliance) has been studied extensively in Europe and America, it is unknown to what extent the importance of working alliance for psychotherapy outcome generalizes to lower-and middle-income countries. Additionally, there is a need for more studies on the alliance using methods that are robust to confounders of its effect on outcome. Method: In this study, 345 outpatients seeking care at the 2 public psychiatric hospitals in Nairobi, Kenya, filled out the Session Alliance Inventory (SAI) and the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation-Outcome Measure (CORE-OM) during each session. The effect of alliance on next-session psychological distress was modeled using the random intercept cross-lagged panel model, which estimates a cross-lagged panel model on within- and between-subjects disaggregated data. Results: Changes in the working alliance from session to session significantly predicted change in psychological distress by the next session, with an increase of 1 point of the SAI in a given session resulting in a decrease of 1.27 points on the CORE-OM by the next session (SE = 60, 95% confidence interval [-2.44, -.10]). This finding represents a medium-sized standardized regression coefficient of between.16 and.21. Results were generally robust to sensitivity tests for stationarity, missing data assumptions, and measurement error. Conclusion: Results affirm cross-cultural stability of the session-by-session reciprocal effects model of alliance and psychological distress-symptoms as seen in a Kenyan psychiatric outpatient sample, using the latest developments in cross-lagged panel modeling. A limitation of the study is its naturalistic design and lack of control over several variables.

    Reflective Functioning, Affect Consciousness, and Mindfulness: Are These Different Functions?2014Inngår i: Psychoanalytic psychology, ISSN 0736-9735, E-ISSN 1939-1331, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 26-40Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Concepts of mentalization, affect consciousness, and mindfulness have been increasingly emphasized as crucial in psychotherapy of diverse orientations. Different measures have been developed that purportedly measure these concepts, but little is known about their interrelationships. We discuss conceptual overlaps and distinctions between these three concepts, and present results from a preliminary empirical study comparing their measures.

    Methods: To study the relationships between these concepts, data from a group of psychotherapy students (N = 46) was used. Mentalization operationalized as Reflective Functioning (RF) was rated on transcripts of a brief version of the Adult Attachment Interview, the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) was used to measure mindfulness, and the Affect Consciousness Interview-Self/Other version (ACI-S/O) to measure affect consciousness.

    Results: There was a small but statistically significant relationship between RF and FFMQ, but surprisingly no relationship between AC-S/O and RF or FFMQ. A post-hoc analysis showed a relationship between consciousness of others’ affects and a reduced version of the RF scale.

    Discussion: Results confirm that mentalization and mindfulness share some  common variance, but contrary to expectations affect consciousness seems to be more different from RF and mindfulness than expected. A possible explanation for the counterintuitive finding of no relationship between RF and affect consciousness is that affect consciousness measures a mature capacity for mentalized affectivity, while RF (especially at the high end) is largely a buffer against trauma and adversity. Low or absent findings for the FFMQ are explained more in terms of different methods variance.

    Emotion-inducing approaching sounds shape the boundaries of multisensory peripersonal space2015Inngår i: Neuropsychologia, ISSN 0028-3932, E-ISSN 1873-3514, Vol. 70, s. 468-475Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to survive in a complex environment, inhabited by potentially threatening and noxious objects or living beings, we need to constantly monitor our surrounding space, especially in the vicinity of our body. Such a space has been commonly referred to as ones peripersonal space (PPS). In this study we investigated whether emotion-inducing approaching sound sources impact the boundaries of PPS. Previous studies have indeed showed that the boundaries of PPS are not fixed but modulate according to properties of stimuli in the surrounding environment. In Experiment 1, participants performed a simple tactile detection task of targets presented to their right hand. Concurrently, they were presented with intensity-changing task-irrelevant artificial sound sources perceived as approaching toward their body. The physical properties of the sound elicited emotional responses of either neutral or negative valence. Results showed larger PPS when the approaching stimulus had negative as compared to neutral emotional valence. In Experiment 2, we used ecological sounds which content (i.e., psychological associations to the sound producing source), rather than physical properties, elicited emotional responses of negative, positive or neutral valence. In agreement with results from experiment 1, we found larger PPS when the approaching stimuli had negative emotional valence as compared to both neutral and positive ones. Results are discussed within the theoretical framework that conceives PPS as a safety zone around ones body. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    #Icecrown Citadel #Ulduar: En kvalitativ studie om World of Warcraft utifrån spelarnas perspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine the player’s experiences and perspective of the massively multiplayer online role playing game World of Warcraft. This study wants to find out the effects on the players psychological and social well-being through interviewing 10 World of Warcraft players between the ages of 18-32. This has been done through a thematic analysis. The reason behind this study is because a lot of scientific studies and the media has portrayed World of Warcraft players in a negative light where they are described as lone wolfs. This study wants to find out how the players themselves talk about the game and how it has affected their lives. The findings of this study have shown that players describe World of Warcraft as a meaningful occupation where it has given them better confidence, self-awareness, language skills, social skills but also build a social network inside the game. The social interactions that the players have with their friends have given them a platform to be open about their lives but also problems that affect them in the real world. The conclusion of this study is that the picture that a lot of the scientific studies and the media are portraying is a dishonest one. They judge players as single group where they do not look at the bigger picture or through the perspective of the World of Warcraft player.

    Instruction effects in implicit artificial grammar learning: A preference for grammaticality2008Inngår i: Brain Research, ISSN 0006-8993, E-ISSN 1872-6240, Vol. 1221, nr 24, s. 80-92Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Human implicit learning can be investigated with implicit artificial grammar learning, a paradigm that has been proposed as a simple model for aspects of natural language acquisition. In the present study we compared the typical yes–no grammaticality classification, with yes–no preference classification. In the case of preference instruction no reference to the underlying generative mechanism (i.e., grammar) is needed and the subjects are therefore completely uninformed about an underlying structure in the acquisition material. In experiment 1, subjects engaged in a short-term memory task using only grammatical strings without performance feedback for 5 days. As a result of the 5 acquisition days, classification performance was independent of instruction type and both the preference and the grammaticality group acquired relevant knowledge of the underlying generative mechanism to a similar degree. Changing the grammatical stings to random strings in the acquisition material (experiment 2) resulted in classification being driven by local substring familiarity. Contrasting repeated vs. non-repeated preference classification (experiment 3) showed that the effect of local substring familiarity decreases with repeated classification. This was not the case for repeated grammaticality classifications. We conclude that classification performance is largely independent of instruction type and that forced-choice preference classification is equivalent to the typical grammaticality classification.
