To work as a psychologist feels meaningful and a privilege to have as a profession, at the same time as the mandate I had on DN Inside been anything special to me.
When Today's News heard of ten years ago, I was enthusiastic. I saw an opportunity opens for a task that I also wanted to devote myself as a psychologist. To help to tell many about the psychology of new knowledge and methods, which I found so captivating and full of possibilities when it comes to providing help. And I realized that a better platform for this than Today's News, I could hardly get.
about the importance of making psychology more accessible. To be able to turn to a psychologist who gives advice in a journal is a perhaps modest such things, but still a contribution, to a more equal access to psychological help. As well as a way to demystify our profession, because sometimes it is a little strange beliefs about who we are and what we engage in.
In line with the to make psychological knowledge accessible is that more and more psychologists are now writing self-help books. My successor on the DN the Inside, the knowledgeable and talented Anna Bennich Karlstedt, do it, and I do it.
