Oskar Flygare 2

Oskar is a psychologist and PhD student in the group since April 2017.

His research focus is 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.


  • 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.
