Main Field(s) of Research, Abstract

Research activities are currently focused on different aspects of traumatic stress research, such as epidemiology, risk factors, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy for PTSD, as well as neurobiologic issues including resilience and fear conditioning in traumatized populations. A special emphasis is on refugee mental health. We are currently looking into emotion regulation in severely traumatized (tortured) refugees, planning to develop tailored therapeutic mini-interventions aimed at enhancing refugees’ self-efficacy. We investigated the role of dissociation in emotion recognition and regulation in PTSD. A study of epigenetic alterations in young adults who had been exposed to abuse and neglect during childhood is currently ongoing. There we also look into a number of social and interactive functions, including emotion recognition as well as the ability to engage in intimate interactions and to set verbal and physical boundaries when others show unwanted approaching behaviors. Furthermore, we are participating in a multisite implementation study of PM+ (Problem Management Plus) as a low-threshold intervention for Syrian refugees, funded by a large EU (Horizon 2020) grant.
