Oskar Flygare 2

Oskar is a master-level student in psychology at Karolinska Institutet. He has been working with the research group since the start of 2016 and will start PhD studies in 2017.

His research focus will be on cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD and he is currently involved in a RCT comparing internet-delivered CBT with traditional “face-to-face” CBT at a clinic.

The evaluation of the different treatment modalities will provide new insights into the effectiveness of different treatments  for OCD and guide decision-makers when deciding which treatments provide the highest impact.

Proposed PhD-programme

  • Study I: Randomized controlled trial comparing therapist-guided ICBT, self-guided ICBT, and face-to-face CBT for OCD in adults.
  • Study II: Cost-effectiveness of the treatments in Study I
  • Study III: Clinical predictors and moderators of outcome in Study I
  • Study IV: Genetic predictors of treatment outcome in OCD.
