Youth Psycotherapy

The group focuses on psychotherapy for young people with emphasis on how to improve and customize treatment, and on improving the understanding of the mechanisms involved. 

About the group

We focus on research on individualized psychotherapy for young people with mental disorders.

There is a lack of research examining for whom and under what circumstances different therapies may be most efficacious and a lack of process-outcome research that examines the key theoretical mechanisms of action of specific youth psychotherapies.

The main aim for the research group is to contribute with more knowledge on the treatment effects of different psychotherapy modes for the individual young person. 

The research group includes a psychotherapy-practice research network important for keeping the research clinical relevant.
