During the past years, co-production in medical and health related research has gained more focus. The purpose is to ensure that researchers - and the individuals that the research is relevant and has consequences for - will develop and produce the research, and accordingly also, the results together. In our understanding, the eventual success of co-production in research has to be based on some sort of sensitivity to and negotiation as to the perspectives and categories describing the research theme. In this article, based on empirical data from interviews with adolescents participating in treatment for lifestyle change, we explore the significance of the researchers' sensitivity for adolescents' resistance during the interview process. We argue that this sensitivity is embodied and requires ethical reflection helping the researcher to discover ethical moments. By being sensitive as to participants' resistance in the interview situation, we argue that new knowledge is thereby developed.
