Ragnhild Klingenberg Røed


My PhD is within the field of applied forensic psychology and child welfare focusing on investigative interviews with children in the Police and in the Child Protection Services.
My educational background is clinical psychology with subspeciality in Clinical work with children and youth. Before that, I took a BA-degree in Child Welfare and one year of Criminology, practicing in the Child Protection Service in the municipality of Bærum for almost four years before going back to the University.

As a clinical psychologist I have primarily been working within Division of Mental Health Care for children and youth, Hospital clinics in Oslo and Vestfold. For the last five years I have worked as a consultant and clinical psychologist at the Barnahus in Sandefjord (Children's Advocacy Center) in the South-East Police District. The areas of witness psychology, developmental and trauma psychology and child maltreatment in the forensic, clinical and systemic approach are my special interests.
