Brief description

My research is focused on psychological treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The treatment is cognitive behavioral and can be delivered in several ways, as individual face-to-face treatment or group treatment or over the internet. I will in my thesis evaluate the effects on symptoms and treatment cost-effectiveness of a specific component in the treatment (exposure).
