My career spans forty years of academic work. I defended my Ph. D. thesis at Uppsala University, Sweden, 1971. The academic year 1975-76 I spent in Peter Lang’s laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to develop my skills as a psychophysiologist. Returning from the US in 1976, I was offered a professorship in somatic psychology at the University of Bergen, Norway. I stayed in Bergen until 1982, when I returned to my “Alma Mater” Uppsala University as a professor of Clinical Psychology. In 1993 I replaced Marianne Frankenhaeuser as a professor of psychology at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, where I have been working until my retirement last summer. However, I continue my work at the Karolinska as a Professors Emeritus and a part time “Senior Scientist”.
