Editorial Nordic Psychology, 2013 Vol. 65, No. 1, 1–2, http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/19012276.2013.796078 EDITORIAL Borderline trauma experience, fear of paedophilia, sick leave, stereotyping and body esteem – what have these different fields in common? They all represent parts of the complex everyday life of the psychological research fields in the Nordic countries today. Nordic psychological research has a unique richness both when it comes to subject matter and when it comes to the use of different methodical approaches to psychology. This issue of Nordic Psychology reflects this rich complexity. In the first article “Stories from the road of recovery – how adult, female survivors of childhood trauma experience ways to positive change” Signe Hjelen Stige, Per-Einar Binder, Jan H. Rosenvinge and Bente Træen explore how female survivors of childhood trauma who have sought treatment experience ways to positive change. In a study consisting of in-depth interviews with 13 consenting clients, the results are presented in five interrelated, but distinct main themes. These themes were most important for the clients: finding new ways to understand one’s emotions and actions, moving from numbness towards vital contact, becoming an advocate of one’s own needs, experiencing increased sense of agency and staying with difficult feelings and choices. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nordic Psychology Taylor & Francis
