Very soon after the start of my psychodrama training 1977 with Zerka I started to use the method in my family therapy work, in conflict management at hospitals, organizational management and wherever I worked. The 70-es and even the 80-es were an era of free experimenting of creative methods, in the spirit of anti-psychiatry. Today I use psychodrama and sociodrama as supervision method for different staff, as educational tool for social workers and family therapists. Further more as assessment method (Genosociogram among others) of assumptive foster families and adoptive couples.

My special area is psychodrama work with psychosomatic disease.

Research – 5 years treatment and research program with long lasting psychosomatic disease at the National Institute for Psychosocial Factors and Health, Stockholm.
My asset is my curiosity and creativity, my enjoyment is the involvement with people, and my hope is to build pleasant structures for myself and for others. Democratic values and equality are my leading stars in human relations.
