Areas of Expertise

  • Health consequences of mass-trauma, disaster, violence and other traumatic events for children, adolescents and their families
  • Headache, pain, insomnia, other somatic and post-traumatic stress symptoms in children and adolescents exposed to trauma
  • Pediatric medicine

Stensland is a research director of the section on disaster and forced migration, children and adolescents, and pediatrician, with a PhD in medicine from the University of Oslo (2015).

Stensland is a leading expert on child and adolescent trauma and publishes widely in the fields of violence and traumatic stress studies, terrorism, child abuse, and neglect. Through her research, Stensland has made a notable contribution in understanding the impact of disaster and other traumatic events on the somatic health and well-being of children, adolescents growing into young adults, and their families. With her background in both research and pediatrics, her emphasis has been on implications of such knowledge for practice.

Stensland is widely consulted by governmental agencies and health services, delivering official commissioned reports and disseminating research implications widely. She headed the advisory taskforce for the Norwegian Directorate of Health on the psychosocial follow-up of refugees from the war on Ukraine (2022) and has also contributed extensively to similar advisory assignments on psychosocial response to the covid-19 pandemic (2020-22) and the Gjerdrum mudslide (2020-21). She was also a member of the “BarnUnge 21” strategy task force appointed by the Norwegian Ministry of Children and Families (2019-21).

Stensland is serving on the Board of Directors at the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) since 2018. She was a Fulbright scholar at Boston University School of Public Health (2003-2004) and in 2015 she was recognized with Solveig and Johan P. Sommers foundation award for her contribution on understanding the impact of trauma in children and adolescents.
