Sustainable Health and Excelling Performances

Working with highly specialized care for eating problems, body image and compulsive exercise are some of my core commitments.

Sustainable Health and Excelling Performances

For seven years, more than 1,000 schoolgirls of different ages were studied over time in the Uppsala area, aiming to identify risk- and protective factors for the development of eating disorders. The work led to a doctoral dissertation in 2000. The work with problems related to food, eating, weight, body shape, and exercise has been a central part of my work and commitment ever since. I   also work with issues related to achievements in sports, performing arts and professional performances.
