Research

Ann Johansson’s research interest mainly concerns how ’occupational adaptation’ manifests itself in different life situations. During our life course we are affected by different challenges and hard situations that we try to manage, master, in different ways. In some life situations there are more obstacles than usual for mastering and adaptation. A person’s capacity for adaptation is put to the test especially in situations such as illness, injury, disability and stressful life situations. The use of adaptive strategies may improve health and wellbeing since it entails an increased feeling of personal control. In her dissertation work Ann used ’occupational adaptation’ as the theoretical framework to examine and understand how persons from different life contexts and in strained life situations adapt occupations to master their occupational performance.

Another of Ann’s research interests is occupation based health-promoting programs for older persons living in community dwellings and their impact on health and well-being. She is also interested in activities in everyday life for older women immigrated from Balkan; if their activities have changed after the migration and, if so, how the women master these changes. Further research interests relates to how vulnerable EU citizens with experience of begging, perceive their everyday life, occupational adaptation and health.
