Welcome to the homepage of Siv Boalt BoŽthius!

Siv Boalt BoŽthius is professor emerita at Stockholm University, licensed psychologist and psychoanalyst (member of IPA).

From 1988-2002 I was principal of a university college, the Erica Foundation, an independent institute, financed by the government and Stockholm county council, providing child and adolescent psychotherapy, training and research.

I was visiting professor at Copenhagen University 2002–2003 and responsible for research projects on e.g. group psychotherapy for young adults and child psychotherapy.

During 2002–2007 I was the president of EFPP (the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy), an umbrella organization based on a national membership for 26 countries in Europe with about 15 000 psychoanalytic psychotherapists.

I am a member (former president and vice president) of AGSLO (the Swedish Foundation for the Study of Leadership and Organisation), OPUS (an Organization for Promoting Understanding of Society), IPA (the International Psychoanalytic Association) and ISPSO (the International Organization for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations). I am on the editorial board for Small Group Research, and on the international advisory boards for Organisational and Social Dynamics and Journal of Child Psychotherapy.

My research is mainly focused on group and organizational issues including group supervision and psychotherapy training.

In 2010 I started a two-year advanced level training program at the department of psychology, Stockholm University. It consists of six courses focusing on organizational development, leadership, the role as consultant, change processes, the inner dynamic of organizations, work and health and methodological issues. The next training program will start in 2012.
