Licensed psychologist (Sweden), Writer, PhD research candidate at University of Queensland (Australia).
Sara’s research topics include psychological health and wellbeing, nonduality, self-being and self-becoming. She is specifically interested in relational thought, humanistic psychodynamic theory, existential-intergrative psychology and metaphysics. Sara's current research advocates a reconceptualization of the notions of the self in the discipline of psychology, with recourse to nonduality and indeterminism.
This research advocates a reconceptualization of the notions of the self in the discipline of psychology. I am particularly interested in how Martin Buber’s dialogical ontology and Otto Rank's relational psychology can elaborate the theories of the self in late – postmodern psychology.
