www.jacobmosgaard.dkJacob is a licenced psychologist working in private practice. He works with individual, couples, and families, but at the moment he is working mostly with clinical supervision, coaching, teaching, training, and creative construction. He has been engaged with systemic and constructionist ideas since the middle of the 90s. Together with fellow psychologist Bruno Vinther he arranges workshops with a social constructionist twist for professionals from both therapeutic and organizational contexts.Jacob has worked at a family treatment unit and in a psychiatric unit, for instance doing psychotherapy in groups, but also developing and connecting to ideas about the social constructions of psychiatric diagnoses in professional and everyday practices.Recently Jacob has been especially concerned with themes of labeling and identity, as well as new ways of bringing a not-knowing position to work across contexts. These interests have ledis leading him in different directions.One line of interest is the role of new social realities such as globalization, internet and social media in the possibilities of new identity constructions. Another line of interest is the exploration of anthropological approaches and their use in professional social constructionist practices, especially therapeutic practices.Most recently Jacob has tried combining his inspirations from systemic, narrative, and constructionist thinking in a book on myths about love, focusing both on relationships and meaning making, both on love and on the myths surrounding it.
