About Sara Edlund

Background

Sara is a licensed clinical psychologist and a PhD student in psychology. She graduated with a master's degree in psychology from Örebro University in 2010. Sara's employment is the third in a series that are a part of a collaboration between Örebro County Council (Örebro läns landsting) and Örebro University. The collaboration means that Sara shares her working time between the two employers. Her supervisors at the university are Professor Maria Tillfors and Professor Steven Linton. Supervisor at Örebro County Council is Med Dr Fredrik Holländare.

Research

Sara's area of research is emotion regulation, chronic pain and anxiety. Among other things she is investigating communication from the caregiver and the relationship it has with important concepts in the pain literature. CHAMP has an ongoing co-operation in this area with the pain clinic at Akademiska University Hospital in Uppsala. She is also investigating the possibility to adjust Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to patients with anxiety disorders where previous exposure treatments have failed to be helpful.

Sara wrote her master's thesis about partner impact on chronic pain, more specifically the effect of validation from the partner. This study is also a part of her dissertation.
