Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapyImplementation and implementation leadership

I was trained as a psychologist in 1995, and a specialist in psychology in 2005. The first years as a psychologist I worked in the addiction field, so with that background it was natural to specialize in psychological work with addiction. For the next 10 years I worked at BUP Nedre Romerike, where I was team leader for one of the generalist teams and part of the management team. During that period, I also completed further education as a supervisor in cognitive therapy. At the time, I was also concerned with trauma and became an approved EMDR therapist. From 2008 I participated as a therapist in the first Norwegian TF-CBT study, and in 2010 I was recruited to conduct training in the method at NKVTS. I have been involved in the national implementation of TF-CBT in Norwegian BUPs since the start of the project in 2012, for a few years also as general manager. Through participation in the project for more than 10 years, I have gained a lot of experience with all aspects of implementation work, from training of practitioners to the follow-up of BUP leaders, in recent years also with the program for implementation leadership, LOCI. There has been a lot of exciting development work and meaningful participation in research, mainly related to TF-CBT and its implementation, but also other research at NKVTS. I feel that in my work I am lucky to have the opportunity to contribute to ensuring that so many children and young people who are struggling after traumatic events can both be discovered and receive effective treatment, so that they can start their development again and live good lives.
