Internet-delivered therapy is gaining ground – it has been proven helpful against arachnophobia, tinnitus and depression. At the forefront of this research field is Gerhard Andersson, professor of clinical psychology and recent winner of two awards for his efforts. He sees a number of areas where web-based therapy can benefit patients as well as the healthcare system.
The more people who beg for our compassion, the colder we become. The desire to give is strongest towards one person. The physiological mechanisms behind this behaviour have now been documented by professor Daniel Västfjäll and his colleagues in Oregon.
ECIDD, European Conference on Psychological Theory and Research on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, is being held in Sweden for the first time – at Linköping University, from 12 to 14 June.
