Lisa Clefberg and Kent Drougge

Ms. Lisa Clefberg runs a psychology consulting company in Stockholm and she was a JPO at UNICEF in New York early on in her career. She holds a PhD in Clinical Psychology (Stockholm University), a Master of Science in Psychology (Uppsala University) and is a licensed Psychologist and Psychotherapist within the National Board of Health and Welfare in Sweden.

Ms. Clefberg has worked as a researcher and lecturer at universities in Sweden, Australia and Chile and has led several international research projects. Over the past 20 years she has specialized on the treatment and prevention of stress, anxiety, depression, sleep issues and adaptation difficulties and works at organizational, managerial, group and individual level. She is a regular lecturer and speaker at universities and international conferences and has run seminars on stress management, cross-cultural communication and time management for international aid workers, researchers and Swedish diplomats since 2015. 

Mr. Kent Drougge is Head of the Regional Cybercrime Center of Stockholm and he has combined his studies at the National Police Academy and the Army Academy with academic studies of computer science, languages and leadership.

Mr. Drougge is a detective superintendent and has worked within the army and the Swedish police force for over 25 years, with increasing managerial responsibilities. Over the past 10 years, his work as a manager has been characterized by collaboration, cooperation and participation. Due to the high (organizational and psychological) demands involved when working with computer forensics, complex cybercrime, internet-related sexual child abuse among other things, Mr. Drougge and his department have been pioneers in terms of looking for ways to prevent and intervene early when detecting issues related to stress and anxiety in their law enforcement colleagues.

Ms. Clefberg and Mr. Drougge have decided to join their perspectives to look at stress from a personal, professional and organizational angle and have developed a set of recommendations in terms of prevention, early detection and intervention at both an individual and organizational level to increase the psychological wellbeing and functioning of people and organizations.
