Personal profile

Research profile

Since 1995, I have been researching the application of music therapy in the treatment of people with psychiatric issues. This research is primarily clinical focused research conducted at the Music Therapy Research Centre in Psychiatry (MUFiP). MUFiP has existed since 1994 and is a collaboration between the Department of Communication and Psychology and Aalborg University Hospital Psychiatry.
The focus of my research has included the treatment of conditions such as depression, personality disorder, etc.
Currently, I am investigating patients' experience of the benefits of treatment for depression. The importance of the therapeutic alliance in music therapy, mentalisation in music therapy etc.
