In English



We, Sara Johansson and Helena Hermansson, met over 15 years ago while we were both volunteers for the Swedish Red Cross. We soon realized we shared many foundational values and experiences and now, we run Creative Mammals together.

We write, give trainings, lectures, and seminars on topics related to Psychology, crisis support, newborns’ separation/closeness and development, and human resilience. We explain the latest research and make it comprehensible and easy to apply in day-to-day situations or in extraordinary circumstances.

Our name stems from us being two creative mammals, striving to inspire and empower you. Between us we have academic degrees in Psychology (MSci and BA), Political Science and Crisis Management (PhD), International relations (BA), and extensive field experience from working with crisis- and psychosocial support both nationally and internationally in the acute phase of disasters and terrorist attacks (Syria, Pakistan, Thailand, Norway).
