Illustrasjon til nummer 2/2018 av Psykologtidsskriftet til faglig innspill artikkel om følgende; Flere titalls tiltak og programmer har blitt implementert for å behandle og forebygge psykiske vansker hos barn i Norge. I kjølvannet av implementeringen av nye og effektive tiltak og programmer dukker det opp et viktig spørsmål – forvalter vi disse tiltakene og programmene på en effektiv måte? Beklageligvis er nok svaret nei. For at et tiltak skal kunne kalles evidensbasert, må det ha en dokumentert effekt gjennom en nøye planlagt studie, der tiltaket implementeres og gjennomføres i henhold til strenge krav. Både forskning og erfaring synes dessverre å vise at man har hatt begrenset suksess med å implementere og gjennomføre forskningsbaserte tiltak i praksis og på skoler slik tiltakene opprinnelig var tenkt.

Upside-down illustration for an essay called Det blir mellom oss / It stays between us, written by Gry Sannem Hustad, about development oriented intersubjective therapy which emphasizes that the relation itself, between pasient and therapist, is a change making factor. I made a limited therapy room setting, where the two of them grows accustomed to each other. Visually showing their contrasting viewpoints on the situation, by mirroring the floor. The therapist consisting of welcoming round shapes, and the pasient constructed of more determined triangular lines. The therapist taking part in the pasients worldview, and the pasient getting the opportunity to see the inviting viewpoint of the therapist. In the overlap between them, a new shared face/attitude starts to emerge. Drawn with a lead pencil, ruler and colored digitally.

Illustration for an essay about what can be found on psychological circumstances surrounding destiny shock in several of Henrik Ibsens's plays. The playwright Berhard Shaw claimed psychological violent events can make all of us compassionate/empathic there and then. Many of Ibsen's male characters become exposed to such instances of destiny shock,  just as he himself went through. But do they nevertheless react in a human way? The essay is written by Ellen Hartmann. I have focused on the play Fruen fra havet – one of several plays analyzed in the essay – and made a graphical play with symbols and props from the theatre and story. Notably the grin/laugh mask, visually merging it with the boat of Ellidas long lost flame, the stranger at sea with whom she loves/loved, coming in and getting repelled in the end. Leaving a reunited Dr. Wangel and Ellida, who have unvailed every insecurity between themselves, despite Dr. Wangel's destiny shock, both allowing for an understanding for each others perspectives. Drawn with a lead pencil and colored digitally.

Illustration for Psykologtidsskriftet, issue 11/2017; together with an essay (by Aksel Inge Sinding and Svein Øverland) called Vandrepsykologene (in english; Wandering therapists). There are now more than 800 registered forms of psychotherapy. Even though therapists emphasizes different parts of the therapy, the framework are surprisingly similar; two humans speaking together from their separate chairs. What happens when these two humans wanders outside and beyond this room of therapy? I've made a set of three illustrations, depicting different internal moods shown through the external changes. Drawn with ink and brush, colored digitally.

Illustration concerning «Circle of Security Parenting» (COS-P), a psychoeducational program where the aim is to help parents in their parenting role. Solli DPS have been leading COS-P group therapy for pasients since the spring of 2012, with positive feedback along the way. My illustrative take dwells on a parents ability to mentalize with the child, whereas I use a shift in perspective between mother and infant, as a visual asset.

Illustration for the essay Delt bosted – hva sier forskningen? (A divided home – what does research tell us), written by Agnes Andenæs, Peder Kjøs and Odd Arne Tjersland. From the introduction (and translated into english by me); «Research does neither give grounds for claiming that a divided home is damaging for little children, a better solution for them, or that the solution is conflict reducing. The professional arguments and the political decisions should therefore be characterized by less cocksureness». My solution for the featured illustration was to focus on the many sources of what is best or worse for a child divided between to parenting worlds. Then visualizing this fragmented sureness by having the different characters uttering the child's emotional responses. Like emoji masks, leaving the the real child stuck in the center, blank and a lingering question.

My first go as an illustrator for Psykologtidsskriftet for an essay called «Focault's humanistic psychology» by Line Joranger. The essay depicts an early Foucault who wanted to show that the root to understanding psychological phenomenon are not to be found in universal medical therms, but rather in reflection on the human itself.
