Om mig

Jag är socionom och sedan våren 2021 även doktorand. Jag har tidigare arbetat som skolkurator samt barn- och ungdomsutredare i socialtjänsten. Mellan 2017-2021 hade jag rollen som brukarinflytandesamordnare (BISAM) i BUP Region Stockholms verksamhetsstöd, med uttalat fokus på brukarmedverkan, delaktighet och inflytande i psykiatrisk heldygns- och öppenvård.

Mitt avhandlingsarbete adresserar om och hur ungas återhämtning från komplexa psykiska problem kan främjas genom att ha agens i barn- och ungdomspsykiatrisk heldygnsvård. Via kvalitativa intervjuer vill jag undersöka både ungdomars berättelser om tillgången till "självvald inläggning" i BUP samt personalens resonemang kring implementeringen av denna metod. Avhandlingsarbetet finansieras delvis av Region Stockholm och i april 2021 tilldelades min forskningsplan även ett stipendium från Riksförbundet för Social och Mental Hälsa (RSMH), vilket är tänkt att främja brukarmedverkan i forskning.

Utöver Forskargruppen för psykosocialt arbete och Barn- och ungdomsseminariet vid Institutionen ingår jag även i den nationella forskargruppen CEPI (centrum för evidensbaserade psykosociala interventioner) och det narrativa forskarseminariet NAFS.

  • Review: Young people’s recovery processes from mental health problems – a scoping review

    2022. Jennie Moberg, Lisa Skogens, Ulla-Karin Schön. Child and Adolescent Mental Health


    Background: Recovery from mental illness and mental health problems is relatively well-researched among adults, but evidence that focuses on the recovery experiences of young people and what characterizes it is scarce. With this in mind, this article aims to map out the existing research in order to identify prevailing knowledge about the recovery of young people between the ages of 12 and 25. Method: Drawing on scoping review methodology, this article is based on an analysis of 33 articles conducted in the USA, Australia, and Eur-ope. Results: Our findings reveal that young people express both similar and divergent lines of reasoning about recovery compared with adults. Our findings also indicate that young people often fluctuate in the way they view recovery, and that they thus tend to be ambivalent about what recovery means. Parents usually high-light the importance of professionals facilitating recovery, while care staff problematize the organizational frameworks available as aggravating circumstances for implementing personal recovery. Young people, parents, and care staff consistently describe recovery as a way to, despite lingering problems, enable a satisfying life. Conclusions: Through this review, we outline the need for a more distinct focus on agency and participation in young people’s recovery processes, at the same time as family involvement needs to be further investigated and operationalized.

  • ‘The Great Oblivion’—An Autoethnographic Depiction of Social and Personal Recovery After Electro-convulsive Therapy (ECT)

    2022. Jennie Moberg. British Journal of Social Work


    This article aims to shed light on cognitive disabilities after electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) from an expert-by-experience perspective. It illuminates the living conditions that may follow, with a particular focus on epistemic injustice, societal attitudes, narration and recovery. Since personal narratives about ECT are scant, an autoethnographic method was used through which I weave together my own experiences of ECT and the need for support from, for example, social services, with research in various nearby areas. These experiences were then placed in a wider psycho-social context. Three themes emerged when analysing own experiences of ECT, revealing both risks and important aspects of managing side effects such as cognitive disabilities: (i) At the social services office; (ii) Alienation in society; and (iii) Excerpt from a friendly conversation. Subjective experiences may broaden the understanding of a certain phenomenon which calls for greater (societal) knowledge regarding cognitive disabilities after ECT. It also emphasises the importance of different professionals, including social workers and psychiatric staff, working to promote recovery, legitimise users’ narratives and not seeing disabilities as given obstacles in everyday life.

  • Staff’s experiences of implementing patient-initiated brief admission for adolescents from the perspective of epistemic (in)justice

    2022. Jennie Moberg, Ulla-Karin Schön. Frontiers in Psychiatry


    Background: The implementation of Patient-Initiated Brief Admission (PIBA) in child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP) in Sweden is ongoing. This intervention enables adolescents between the ages of 13–17 and with complex mental health problems to initiate a short care period for relief and support rather than the care apparatus being controlling in this process. Offering it is likely to promote epistemic agency, an exchange of knowledge and recovery from mental health problems.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to explore staff’s perspectives of PIBA for adolescents with complex mental health problems, and what facilitates or hinders its implementation.

    Methods: Twenty seven employees, 21 women and six men, with various professions in CAP were interviewed and the material was analyzed thematically.

    Results: Two overall themes emerged: “Staff’s Experiences of PIBA” and “Managing Clinical PIBA Work.” The results were discussed in relation to the theoretical frameworks of epistemic injustice and Normalization Process Theory (NPT). The main findings indicate that PIBA was generally viewed in a positive way, but that obstacles arose when it was actually put into practice. Findings also point at an overall lack of agency among staff when implementing this new way of working, at the same time as the need to adapt PIBA from an adult psychiatric intervention to one for adolescents in CAP is addressed.

    Conclusion: This article offers insights into the views of psychiatric staff regarding the implementation of PIBA. If staff wish to support epistemic agency and recovery among adolescents, their agency may be an important aspect in the continued implementation. Furthermore, in order for PIBA to become normalized in a sustainable way, we suggest that the continued implementation should be characterized by a youth-friendly framework.

  • "Det var inte mitt val" - en narrativ studie om upplevelser av elektrokonvulsiv terapi (ECT)

    2013. Jennie Moberg.

    This study aims to highlight patients´ experiences about and thoughts of side effects fromelectroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a therapeutic method commonly used when having severedepressions. The framing of questions were how the respondents of this study describe theirlife before, during and after ECT-treatment, how the treatment has affected their daily life andhow these experiences may contribute to the awareness of power in professional relations.The study is based on three semi-structured narrative interviews and the main result showedthat, according to my interpretation, ECT as a treatment obliterated memories, quality of lifeand daily structure for all participants. Unfortunately they have all become subjects ofpsychiatric power and have faced considerable difficulty in getting professional recognitionaccording to their severe memory issues. The respondents have lost the ability to relate totheir past which clearly makes them struggle in their present context. A point in commonamong them is that neither of them wanted ECT but, because of the lack of communicationbetween them as patients and the health care in general, they all ended up getting it.
