Erick Janssen Welcomed as Visiting Professor in Sweden
Dr. Erick Janssen spent the summer and fall in Sweden, collaborating with colleagues, writing, and developing new research. He was hosted by Dr. Sven-Axel Månsson, director of the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Social Work at Malmö University. Dr. Månsson was a visiting scholar at The Kinsey Institute in 2008.
Erick was offered this opportunity to further develop and disseminate his award-winning work on the “dual control model” of sexual response. As part of his activities, he assisted his Swedish colleagues in the development of a grant application that includes a series of 10 research studies that all, using different methodologies and approaches, focus on the question of how young people navigate a world of increasingly diverse and sometimes contradictory messages about sexuality.
While in Sweden, he also met with researchers and gave guest lectures on current research on sexual desire and arousal at the universities of Lund and Gothenburg and at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.
